Hello! I have a question for you guys. I am wondering how many of you already have your classes enrolled for the summer? Currently almost done with the 3rd semester at Metro Orlando, we start the 4th semester in 1 month and we still have no clue of what our schedule will be like. Most of us have families, jobs, etc and we need to plan our days. Some of us have been forced to quit their jobs and/or gotten fired because of all the last minute changes. It is SO frustrating!

Hi, can you please tell me how has been your experience at Ana g Mendez? I am planning on starting there in January

Well, I go to Metro Orlando. Just finished my BSN this past Saturday after a lot of heartache and frustration. I don't know how it is over in Miami. In Orlando the program is fairly new, we are the 2nd nursing graduating class so there is a lot of disorganization still. How long has the one in Miramar been on? And just making sure, you are fully bilingual right? A lot of people don't know they have to speak, write and read both English and Spanish to attend SUAGM.

Yes i am Fully bilingual. The one in Miramar is also new. They are supposed to call me back to see when the classes start and they still havent. i called a couple of times and they still have not returned my call. Is the program difficult? does it give you flexibility to go to school and also work? I was a student at university of southernmost florida. The school that was affiliated to Dade Medical College. I don't know if you heard the news but it closed from one day to the other, and now i need to start again the nursing courses all over again. So they told me about this school that its accredited and the entrance test is a bilingual one, not a HESI or KAPLAN or TEAS but i don't want to go though the same issues again thats why i am trying to gather more information. I was also told that at Ana G Mendez the bachelor even though its an accelerated program, it takes very long!!! I have lost so much time already with all this situation of the school closure that having to start all over again from the nursing courses makes me feel i'll never finish, therefore since i need to start again might as well do it at a school were my credits can be tranferable

Well, it took me 3.5 years to complete my BSN. I had only 4 classes transferred so I pretty much did it at SUAGM. Yes, entrance exams are in Spanish and English to see where you're at because you will need at least 2 English classes and 2 Spanish ones (used to be 4 of each), no math entrance test though, at least not whenI started. also they now eliminated Humanities 2. Have any classes graduated yet? The first one it Orlando graduated this past June and they had so many issues with their paperwork for NCLEX. Took forever. There are many things they have to improve. A lot of the teachers don't even speak proper English and it is very dumb to me to pay someone to teach me something g in a language in which I should be teaching them. Frustrating. Wait until the open back after the holidays and see what they offer you. Let me know if you have any other questions. The program does use HESI as a review for NCLEX. Not sure if they will start using it as an entrance exam since they also don't do the TEAS either. (Maybe they should). Good luck!

Hello I would like to know if you already pass your NCLEX, and what advises you give for those who are also in Ana G Mendez Metro Orlando? I will graduate in 2018 but I am afraid of so many things such as the pass rates, and the school accreditation getting affected because of that.

Hello, yes, I passed my NCLEX in May. To the current students my only advice is to keep up with their HESI quizzes and tests. It'll help you to pass the HESI at the end of each semester and in a way prepare you for NCLEX. Do not start freaking out about NCLEX just yet. Worry about HESI right now. Reality is that there is no NCLEX if you don't pass HESI first, so that should be the priority. Regarding the credentials, I honestly don't know how it works. Only 3 classes have graduated already and less than 10 people (according to what I have been told), have passed NCLEX, so I don't know how this affects the accreditations. Hopefully they can have more people pass soon so the passing rates don't get too affected. Best of luck!

I currently active at Ana G MendeZ as student .. I regret to belongs to this school. Horrible experience !!!

School changed classes schedule whenever they want and some students , who did not pass the hesi Rn exam must re take the class and paid for it themselves🙈🙈🙈

My experience is horrible 😖😖😖😖

And I am not the only one !!!

Hi Aida0801, Did you ever start the program at Ana G. Mendez? I am planning to start now in September and would love some insight about the school. So far, with what I have interacted with the administration office has me in doubt.
