Any information on Holy Family fast track program? (Philadelphia)

  1. Hello,

    I am graduating this summer with my bachelors degree and I was looking into accelerated nursing programs that are not too expensive. I took all but one of the pre reqs to get into the Holy Family fast track program. I plan on taking that this coming Fall and applying for Spring 2015 entering class. However, I can't find alot of information on people who have graduated from this program. I know people who went to Holy Family for X-ray and they liked it. Does anyone have anything they can say about this program? I really wanted to do this one because I like how they have semesters that are split in half (about 6-7 weeks) and also I meet all the requirement for the program. If I wanted to apply to Rutgers or other programs I would need to take 4 more classes and some of the pre reqs classes I have "C"s in and they only accept "B" or above, which means that I would have to retake those classes over again. I am going to be 26 in two months so I would like to finish my nursing degree as soon as possible and finally start my life (I feel like I have been in school forever). If anyone has any information please let me know!

    The reason you haven't been able to find anyone who graduated specifically from the accelerated program is because the spring 2015 is the first class. Apparently they created a brand new nursing lab and everything at the Newtown campus. I am extremely interested in attending the university for this program as well, however, the internet is full of negative testimonies regarding the university in general. I would love to hear from someone who has something positive to say. Best of luck to you! Maybe we will meet in the program!

    Hi Deenin Nurse!

    I am new to this site even though I have been reading forums 24/7 due to my interest of going into nursing soon!
    I have been shopping around for schools and like you, I have heard really little about HFU program. One thing I did hear from a friend of mine that will be attending HFU as a freshmen, she has heard nothing but great things about the school/program. I am hoping that once she starts school, she will know more and let me know. I will keep you posted!
