St joseph hospital school of nursing.

    Hello everyone, I am new allnurses.com. I am glad to see that there is a site where I can communicate with nurses from all over. I have a question. I recently applied to St joseph Hospital school of nursing located at 8th girard ave in philadelphia, PA. It is an accelerated one year RN program. I am somewhat concerned because I don't know much about the school. They don't even have a website. I wm currently working on prequisites to start the program in november. It is fairly new and just opened up about three years ago. I would love to get the input of someone that knows about the program or has graduated from it...thanks a lot.

    Hello
    I can understand that you feel nervous. I have not heard anything good about that program. I was told by a current student attending the program that it is very disorganized. Some of the students are afraid that they are not learning enough to be safe in a hospital setting let alone to pass the boards. Lastly, the St. Joe's student was told that out of 60 students, only 4 people took the boards and only 1 passed.

    So St. Joe's Hospital only graduated 4 students out of the 60 in the program?!? Am I understanding that correctly?

    Hi, I know 3 students that graduated from that school, it was disorganized, however I graduated from a well known college and it was also disorganized at times. They were all in the first class;The program just started so there are going to be kinks. As my friend checked online there were a number of people in her program that passed the boards and are currently practicing. There are pros and cons to any program, a larger college you may pass the first time but you will pay loans for the rest of your life. I beleive its what you make of it, get experience at your clinicals, study hard I am sure you will do fine.Good Luck!
