Oh, and to whoever said why don't they keep up with their NCLEX passing rates it is because it's not applicable to the school. The majority of the students (English and Spanish trimesters) stay in Puerto Rico and they don't have to take the NCLEX. They take a nursing exam unique to Puerto Rico, hence no passing rate. It wouldn't be very accurate if only 20 students took the test.

Puerto Rico does however have a testing center for the NCLEX so that you don't have to retake it in the state you wish to practice!

Thanks for all the great Info. I will have more questions coming. I will be doing the accelerated program this fall and I am going to PR in a week to check things out. I have been accepted and have lived in PR previously but I have not lived in Rio Piedras. Or is it called Cupey? Do you know which nehiborhoods are closest to campus?

Like anything in life, it's what you make of it. You can choose to work hard to reap rewards or you can skate by. I'm sure the program will benefit those who are active learners that take their studies seriously. I'll be attending in August and will be coming down in a few weeks for the orientation and to house hunt. I'm making the trip mostly to look for housing as I understand the orientation is somewhat optional. I'll be house hunting with another person from the forum and we are interested in a potential third roommate. We will be looking at places near the school. I think the closest area to the school is Rio Piedras and the Cupey area? I've been checking clasificados online and there are some cool places! I have a well trained yellow lab so I'm looking for a place that will take him. Congratulations to everyone attending in August.

I agree, the program is very much what you make of it. If you're there to learn, the resources are there. The nursing professors are great.

Hato Rey would be the closest area I would suggest living near the school. The area which the school is in I believe is technically called Rio Piedras, Cupey is a little farther.

Which banks? I believe the Metro Campus has a Santander ATM right outside the school.. not 100% sure on that it is Santander though. I had to stand by it many times waiting for my ride home : ) Maybe it would be convenient to sign up with Santander since you would have access to an ATM whenever you went to classes.

Thanks Belle08 for taking the time to help us newbies out. We are going to check out some places in Hato Rey. Hadn't looked into local banks yet so that is good info to know.

If you have a Bachelors or ALL of their Gen Ed requirements done (not your previous school) then you could finish in two years.

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.
