    Thanks for the reply, I never been to college so this would be the first time, so im starting from the bottom. The family thing..lol.. idk, my aunt lives in Bayamon and she was the one who told me to go to PR to go to school, she said I can stay at her place. I saw on the UMET website the nursing program was in cupey and somewhere else, didn't know they had it in bayamon, I would like to find a school in the metro area. I kinda dont know where to begin lol, new to this,

    Well the bilingual nursing bsn program is in bayamon. All of your nursing classes are in English as well as your sciences but your general education classes are in Spanish. I took computers and it was a joke lol only because I knew how to do it and my classmate took history of PR in Spanish and he passed. I suggest you take a trip and visit both schools its what I did before I made my final decision.

    I'd say take a trip here. I dont know where your coming from but I lived in FL and at time tickets were cheap. Checking out the schools is what made me make my final decision. You can call the nurse directors at the schools. I could never get through in la inter but all my emails I sent the nurse director she replied back. (she's amazing).

    I live in CT, got family over there, but like i said my aunt said she is willing to help me out, i got some ppl telling me that its a bad idea to go to school there to not go that PR, pr is bad, there kinda like raining on my parade, but i really want to go over there so i put all that to the side,but like you said i think the best is ti go over there and to see for myself what the school/programs are like.
