    Hey everybody, thought Id make this announcement. There is a new AUA nursing program combined with CUNY Lehman College of Nursing. So spread the word to anybody interested in doing nursing that you know. All information is on the website.

    i've said this before, it's nice to see the school is expanding it's education but i don't know who would want to come all the way to the Caribbean to go to nursing school. nursing schools already are easy enough to get into. i looked at the curriculum and it's 6 semester = 2 years which is the amount of time it would take to get your RN back in the states.

    i don't know...maybe i'm missing something.

    DocP. I dont know if I would say there easy to get into. Many have a waitlist. Nevertheless, it is a bit odd. AUA might be following UMHS-St. Kitts (Dr. Ross's new school) UMHS has a 97%(?) successful US nursing exam pass rate.

    You can't get an RN in 2 years from start to finsh unless you are already have BSN in nursing.

    ASN 2 years undergrad
    BSN 4 years undergrad
    BSN to RN is 2 years. Some US nursing schools contract this time to get RN in 5 years total from start of undergrad.

    The AUA program appears to be an ASN program with auto admission with passing board scores thru affiliations to get BSN and RN

    About people not going to the island for nursing school?
    I guess there is a potential demand like the one that started the boom of offshore med schools.

    "Despite a growing shortage of nurses nationwide, the number of applicants denied admission to nursing schools has increased sixfold since 2002"
