I would hope that since you have been reading this board for at least 6 months you would have figured that out.do they still have the 11 month accelerated adn program? i called them today and some woman said that the accelerated adn program is a year and a half, i explained to her that i have a bachelors in science already and she said it is still a year and a half.
Yet you asked several questions several different times and I kept answering them and you kept asking them yet again after I answered them.
I stopped responding to you because you are like the boy who called wolf. I have spoken to other students here at school and they feel the same way. So if you stop getting responses on this thread it may be because we are very sick of you wasting our time.
Oct 22, '11Joined: Oct '10; Posts: 61; Likes: 2worldtraveling yogi thanks for the kind words, but if u read back on the forum u will see that the post clearly states that there is an 11 month program and a 2 year program and a 3 year program but to consult with the school, so this is what i did and they allegedly put me thru to the nursing department and i called there twice yesterday, one girl said there is not an 11 month program and that there is one a year and a half program, then another girl said that there is a two year program only, im speaking in regards to the adn, so i guess im crying wolf so whatever...
Oct 22, '11Joined: Oct '10; Posts: 61; Likes: 2the only other real question i have posed on here and it never got answered was i asked any former inter nursing students to chime in if they got a job when they got back to the states and NO former students responded,Last edit by Silverdragon102 on Oct 22, '11 : Reason: TOS pm to member

But I got sick of answering you because you would dismiss my answers and ask the question again. It was quite frustrating. And to see all the questions you asked all one has to do is click on you profile and then click see all posts by kevano51. You can see out of all your 58 posts 95% of them are questions. About 70% are in this forum.
I felt like you were wasting my time so I stopped answering your questions.

Quote from kevano51Jan 22, 2011and now the 64,000 dollar question!! are grads from inter american getting jobs in the states??
Quote from kevano51Jan 23, 2011it just seems so odd that most of the nursing students on here recommend moving to san juan first, then applying and registering for school, my concern with that is financial aid, i would rather have my financial aid set up before i move down there as i have house payments to make here in Florida, is it even possible to get my financial aid set up first before moving?
Quote from kevano51thanks so much you guys for all the help! I was wondering about the other nursing school there, I think it is called Metropolitan University, someone was saying they are a bit more advanced, better profs, etc.?

Quote from kevano51Feb 13, 2011so is it true that Florida does not accept a degree in nursing from Puerto Rico or that it is more difficult to sit for the NCLEX?
Quote from kevano51Feb 14, 2011ok, thanks, a prior post said that Florida was tougher to get licensed in and I spoke with my sister in law who is in nursing school in Ocala and she said the same thing. I was wondering how much it costs approximately for a year at Interamican University pls?
Quote from kevano51Feb 14, 2011does interamerican offer financial aid, did u guys get financial aid at all, im trying to figure out how to finance all this, also what is the average rent like pls?
Quote from kevano51Feb 18, 2011ok, what about getting work study, isnt that typical? or getting a job as a cook or in retail or something so i have some money coming in?
Quote from kevano51I noticed that InterAmerican also has a law school, does anyone know if there is an option for English speakers to study law in Puerto Rico pls, shot in the dark but I thought I would ask!!

It is only once the August trimester has begun will they allow people to begin in November. I thought it was only for accelerated students but I know of a non-accelerated student starting next week.Do you know if the regular program begins at another time other than august? Thanks
The bad news for you is the next trimester starts on Wed the 2nd of November which is one week from today. Now it is possible to get accepted and start in that time period although it may not be possible for you to wrap up your life in such a short span of time.
