I just met with an academic counselor at TJU over the fact program and just wanted to share some of the take-aways (all according to the counselor)...I have meetings at UPenn and Drexel as well and will share what I will be told
1. Money for school:
First and foremost, she said that last year, TJU gave out 50 full tuition scholarships
in nursing, and 45 of those went to FACT students!
2. Why FACT over UPenn or ACE:
FACT is more clinical, UPenn and ACE are more research based - TJU nurses (allegedly) have more experience from day 1.
FACT has the same amount of clinical time as the traditonal nursing program. FACT is 24 hours a week over 1 year, traditional is 16 hours a week over 2.
