    Baptist Versant Program 2014

    Holycross has been great so far. I live in Hollywood and I worked nights so it took about an hr or a little more to get to work in the afternoon and then about the same time to get home in the mornings. I fell asleep driving on my way home (I was about 5 mins away) and hit a car. Luckily I was stopping at a red light so it wasn't a big impact but it scared me. I also got engaged and my fiance works in deerfield so moving south wasn't an option for us. A friend of mine who worked in the EP lab told me about an opening in the cath lab and I applied and got in.

    Just wanted to say congratulations to all of those who applied and got in and good luck to those who are in the process of applying and interviewing. I started this form and I'm glad it's helped a lot of people get information from each other. I am no longer working for Baptist due to the distance and I received a job opportunity in the cath lab at Holycross. However it was an amazing program that definitely prepared me and guided me through my first year as a new grad.

    la inter or UMET

    The Hurst review is the best. I took it after I finished nursing school at UMET. They came to PR and I passed on the first try.

    Umet and InterAmericana Nursing School

    BTW UMET is accredited. I graduated from there July 2013 took my nclex in October 2013 and passed. I am now working on a med surg floor since March of this yr. Really both schools has its good professors and horrible ones. The nursing classes are in English the pre reqs are in Spanish. My spanish is pretty good so I took a few nursing classes in Spanish (my choice).

    UMET @ Interamerican- Fall 2014

    They have a master's program however I think you need your BSN first

    UMET @ Interamerican- Fall 2014

    I had to take out both but if you have Pell grants it can help plus! Once you're there idk how long you can ask if they still have the hrsa grant. Keep calling to speed up the process. That's what I did because I was applying for the VALOR program at the VA and they needed my transcripts.

    Yes in Cupey campus you can take the train there. It's a lady who does the "international" transcripts

    No testing at least for the med surg units. I think the specialties have much more classes with test. The only test I had was for the 3 day arrhythmia class. It's challenging in the sense that ok we know what's going on because we just came out of nursing school you have the knowledge now it's just applying it and learning the Baptist way and all the policies and paper work, charting etc. But you'll get a charting class. And you're welcome!

    Congratulations to all of you who got accepted!! You're going to love working for Baptist and the next few months are going to be tough but remember to just keep going, you'll make it through. We all know nursing isn't easy and the transition from student to new nurse is definitely not easy but with the help of your preceptors, debriefing session, Versant coordinators and fellow residents you'll survive. Again congratulations!! And welcome to the pineapple family :)

    UMET @ Interamerican- Fall 2014

    My transcripts were not transferred until almost a yr later! Lol mainly because I forgot to send two transcripts but I just took the classes I knew I didn't have mostly nursing classes.

    I was called by a nursing recruiter and was offered two positions. They allow you to choose which one you want.
