Holy Family is a private Catholic institution that embraces diversity and inclusion, ensuring a welcoming and accessible learning community for all. We provide a mission-driven, first-class education. Our core values emphasize family, respect, integrity, service and responsibility, learning, and vision.

Online Student Experience

Online Holy Family University students benefit from the same resources and support as our on-campus students. Whether you’re earning your degree on campus or from home, you are part of the Holy Family University family.

We encourage our online students to join the Student Nurses Association of Holy Family (SNAHF) for a sense of community. You can also check out Holy Family’s Student Life to see if there are any clubs, activities, or events that might interest you.

Support Resources

To ensure your success in the program, we assign a dedicated Student Success Coach to help you navigate your academic journey from your entry into the program through to graduation. We also pair you with a dedicated Clinical Placement Coordinator to assist you with the logistics of securing a clinical site and preceptor.

If you need to ask an instructor a question, you can email them directly or schedule a time to meet virtually during their office hours. If you need extra help, you have a plethora of support resources available to you, including:

  • Instructors
  • Tech support team
  • Library (including library staff and research guides)
  • Writing lab 
  • Counseling center

What systems are used for the online program?
