Helen Fuld 2020 LPN to RN and COVID 19

Posted

Hi there! I am currently an LPN student and am about to graduate in a few weeks! I am absolutely continuing for my RN and am very interested in going to Helen Fuld, as they are affiliated with my current program. Does anyone know if the college will remain online indefinitely through the rest of 2020 and possibly 2021? That's most likely a premature question being that all future plans are "wait and see".

I also wanted to know how current students are doing in the program, or if they are enjoying it. I've had a rough experience in the past with an RN program that was partly due to my own mistakes (I was way too young and did not know how to properly study or critically think for that matter! 😂) and partly due to frustrations within the education itself. I will also say that I have been doing very well in my current LPN program with transcript grades all above 90s, and I worry that it will be a huge ego-crusher if I start getting high 70's on all the tests.

If anyone wouldn't mind shedding some light on how you are managing in this program, or in the same boat as I am, that would be great to share information. 🙂 Thank you!

Hi, I am currently attending Helene Fuld, Right now I’m doing maternity/peds. The school isn’t clear on if we will go back into the classroom as yet.

Hey, can I ask how your schedule looks? I recently got a conditional acceptance to their generic BSN program for Fall 2020 and want to know how this is will affect me in terms of my job. Is working during the program even feasible? Thanks in advance and good luck in your studies!

Hello I wanted to know when did you apply for the program.I been email them and calling them and no one answering my email or phone call

@Dylan22 the BSN program is mostly online I was told, I don’t have a lot of information with the BSN program, I am currently doing my ADN, but you can work and attend school, it feasible, it’s hard but attainable, a lot of my classmates are doing it all..

@Nicola Ausby since covid a lot of employees at HF has quit so it is really hard to reach anyone, and everything is done remotely, no one is in the office. Mrs. Pieada maybe can answer your questions, her email is on the website I believe.

Hi, I am currently awaiting the packet for my next steps (their two prerequisite courses...) since I passed my TEAS on 05/08/2020. Following this thread!

Hi everyone! I had passed a few months ago and I just got the packet for the two pre requisite courses. She said it would be hybrid for these courses, but if it can remain remote it would be awesome for me since I am traveling from far. I am curious as well if everything is going to remain online so im definitely following this thread as well!

Thank you everyone for all the great info!! I started the application process for Helene. The NursingCAS system they're using doesn't offer an app for the LPN-RN program, it only has the RN-BSN app. Anyone else experience this? I did reach out to Mrs. Pineda this afternoon so I am awaiting her reply. I also have found it difficult to get in touch but that makes sense from all the changes. Thankfully, allnurses exist to get my questions answered 😂. Has anyone challenged the Math course or the Clinical Skills course? I am thinking about challenging the math.. but we shall see.

@dorothykay were you able to do the application? I applied 8/31 now I'm waiting to hear back. I wonder how long it takes.

You have to click on the future programs that will bring up the Helene Fuld classes on nursingcas the earliest start that I see is 4/2021. I hope this helps

Hi... was wondering have you heard back from the school? And If you did how long did it take? I just recently apply so I want to get an idea how long is the wait to hear from them .

I had to apply through nursingcas.org . My application has been verified after several hiccups with transcripts since September.  

Oh OK... I applied through the nursingcas aswell. So ill wait and see, im just anxious. Have you taken the TEAS exam??

Not yet, it's online now.

Thnks! Ill wait then hopefully it won't take long..

Hi!! I also applied through nursingcas, which took about a month for everything to finalize. After accidentally sending my transcripts to the college itself, I resent them to nursingcas and one of the transcripts sent through their online platform was not received after two and a half weeks. So I called the customer rep and he was extremely helpful in finding it and having it verified to my application that same day.  I also have been emailing one of the admission directors just to confirm that they received all my info and he helped with smoothing the application process. I am unofficially accepted though!! Fortunately, my LPN school is affiliated with the college and depending on course grades, I was able to bypass the TEAS...so I am not sure how that works exactly. All I know is that it's important to study for them!! Now I am just finalizing all my health forms, background check etc, and waiting to hear back about the schedule for pre-reqs. It's been a long process, so I suggest emailing admissions just to follow up with them, but all in all its been about two months or so to get where I am now.

Thanks for the heads up. Your persistence  will be worth it. Good luck:)
