UD Accelerated

  1. Do anyone have any knowledge about this program. I only have two classes left to fulfill the prerequisites. I was told they do not offer letters of acceptance unless all requirements are fulfilled. Did anyone else find this to be true?

    I was accepted to the Drexel program however I feel it may be too intense since I am a single parent. But, it may be my only choice because I didnt take the TEAS or GRE so I can not finish applying at Jeff.

    I had a friend who just got in- Im traditional BSN. From what I hear, its competitive to be get into since UD gives first preference to UD alumni but its not impossible.

    All prerequisite science courses, including NURS 101, must be completed prior to the end of May. All other prerequisite courses must be completed by the end of the summer of the admitting year.

    Hi dnsh0705,
    i was looking for the UD accelerated program and came across your post. Did you get in? I am interested in this program(and almost done with the prerequisites).So I would like to hear from an insider about tips and suggestions that helped you along the way.

    Hello.. The UD program takes about 30-40 people each Fall. The minimum requirement is a 3.0, but if you have less than that and some experience in healthcare you might be able to make a good case. The program is hard but doable. Just dont plan any other activities or try to work a full time job. Good luck to you.

    Thank you very much dnsn.
    30-40 sounds reasonable.Do you know what their passing rate is?
    Also what was your background and the prerequisites did u take?I kind of hesitated taking Biorganic chemistry since UD is the only school asking for it around here. Other than that I got A in the prereq.so far and a psychology background.

    Thank you so much, cant wait to hear from you, I am all excited about nursing, Lol
