Helene Fuld Review

  1. Hi, currently in a Practical Nursing program and due to graduate in about 2 months. Helene Fuld seems like the most direct LPN-RN program in NYC. From what I've heard it can be hell on earth, or it's amazing. Was just wondering if I can hear from any recent students or those whose opinion of the school may still be relevant today.

    Thank you, Lili

    I graduated from there in 2011 and it was "hell on earth." I feel that most nursing schools are. They are the most direct program in NY for LPN to RN. Like yourself coming from VEEB to HF is a total different ball game. I'm so thankful for the great nursing education I got from VEEB in addition to my job in the nursing home to get me through HF. Although I must say I'm thankful for the opportunities HF has given me since there are many more employment pathways once you become an RN.

    So I posted this in a previous thread, but thought it was relevant to the question you asked. Hope this helps.....

    I went to this school to get information on the program. The recruiter was very nice and accommodating, gave me all the information about the program and what is expected. I told her I'm a Mildred-Elley student (which they have articulation with), which should make it easier to get into the school and you don't have to take the entrance exams (within 2 years of graduating). Of course no one at ME told me this while I was attending. Next I asked about transfer credits and I was told they will transfer prior college credits that apply to the program (science courses 5 or less years and non-science courses 10 years or less). But, they won't transfer ME science courses (any of ME c. Nedits)because it's not college level science courses and those are certificate courses. Excuse the hell out of me.... I know some courses are totally different, but come on. I feel it's all about making money, why should I have to repeat science courses that I already have. And the last time I checked Mildred-elley college is an accredited "college."

    So you may want to do your research to see if they will acknowledge your previous coursework. Good luck to you

    Girlllll! Let me tell you, you don't know how upset when I heard that either! I go to VEEB, and I was hoping at least these credits will transfer, but NOPE. We've literally taken most of these classes from the A&P to the psychology, but our LPN courses are only certificate courses. So I'm guessing our PN coursework isn't necessarily accredited, which sucks. Honestly going to try to take my prereqs at cuny or something so I can transfer those over to Helene Fuld, which should lighten my course load, since I've heard it was hell there. Sigh.
