    Puerto Rico school feedback?

    In terms of banks, I stronglly recommend Banco Popular, Santander has an ATM in the university, but no bank. There's also a BP atm at school. As for living, check areas such as "Las Cumbres", "Crown Hills", "Rio Piedras Heights", "El Senorial". Those are the closest to school, but you don't have to live so close. While serching for rentals, look for Cupey, Rio Piedras. If you want beach, then I recommend Ocean Park, Punta Las Marias.

    ok, no hats or skirts. Just a regular pant nursing uniform. Each University has its own nursing uniform. You only wear it to hospitals. White for males, greenish for females.

    about books: They give you a list when you get there. If you have a credit card with an address from the States you can buy them online and ship them to PR. It's the list expensive way.

    Almost everyone do it. You have to pay a graduation fee of $100 to apply for the ADN. That way the university review your records and give you the degree. Whiout that you cannot apply for the provitional license. As for cost, without any general education courses is about $12,000. It's about $170 per credit plus the administrative fees that are nominal.

    Yes, it's true. You just need to apply for the provitional nursing license in Puerto Rico and you can work as an ADN RN.

    If you take the NCLEX with your ADN, yes only Winsconsin because of accreditation. But you can transfer the license and won't have any problem.

    Ok, first. It really depends on the trimester. In some cases you will de Monday through Saturday or Tuesday through Saturday. In other cases Monday through Thursday or Friday. You are looking at a schedule from 5 till 10pm. Ok... Just be prepare for a "bit" of crisis each trimester for registration. That's because the nursing administration needs to make your registration manually and as you have seen, they are not good at organization. Other than that you'll be ok. In regards of the accreditation, I doubrt they'll loose it. If you get pass the little things everyone complaints, which are the same things that happens in every University, you'll see the program is good. One of the things I would change is that I would hire more professors and offer English nursing classes during the day and not only at night. You need as a group to fight that. In regards to the NCLEX, you can get your RN ADN license through Winsconsin as I said before, and then transfer it to any state you are going to work. After you finish your BSN, the state board in which gave you your license "Winsconsin" changes the classification from ADN to BSN. You don't have to take the exam again. I started in August 2008 and will finish the 30 of May 2010. That's the accelerate program if you have another bachellors degree or your general ed courses completed. If you don't have the general education courses, It will take almost 3 years. Also, it's a combined science program. That means the biology, chemistry, anatomy & physiology courses are complemented in the medical surgerie classes. These are the most difficult ones, they are 2 and take 8 hours a week "only the classes", so that's a 6-10pm class 2 times per week. Basicly yes.

    Hi, I can answer some questions, as I'm graduating from the program in a few weeks. Yes, you can take the NCLEX after earning the ADN. You take it in PR, but through the state board of Winsconsin. Many students from my class have already taken it and passed it. I would guess that round 90% of the ones who took it passed it in the first try.
