    How ironic that I happened to stumble across this page. I teach Junior med-surg and other courses at Holy Family University. Holy Family students work hard and are not lazy! If a student is lazy, they don’t pass the Junior med-surg course as we take the approach that the students will be future nurses responsible for people’s lives. They also need to pass NCLEX and we do have a good pass rate! Feedback from employers that hire our graduates is overwhelmingly positive. In prior years the GPA for nursing at Holy Family University was lower. The GPA for acceptance into nursing is now 2.75 and will most likely increase to 3.0. Perhaps some of the earlier students with the lower GPAs may not be the best representatives of Holy Family University, I don’t know. I would advise you to come into a recruitment day, talk to the nursing faculty, and make good choices. Or make an appt to come in and talk on a different day if you need. When you take on any educational program, life-style changes are necessary. It doesn’t matter where you go but you have to be ready to make school a priority, especially when you get into your major. Believe me, I went back to school as an older student and then did an MSN and a PhD. Paying the money doesn’t guarantee success. You get out of a program what you put into it. So, no Holy Family University grads are not lazy. They are eager to learn while in school and excited when they graduate. I have pictures from a ceremony 2 nights ago that would prove it but I can’t post them bc of confidentiality. If you want to be a nurse, do your homework both before you pick your program and then when you are in it. I wish you all the best.
