Galen College of Nursing - Tampa Bay Reviews

Upon moving to Florida, I was convinced that I wanted to attend USF for my associate's degree in Nursing. After coming into contact with several students attending Galen, I decided I needed to talk to the school and see what it was all about. I haven't regretted that decision since that very moment. Knowing when you are at a clinical site that the nurses in that facility want to work with students from Galen, is a feeling like no other. Endless compliments on how Galen students are prepared beyond measure to take on the tasks of a student nurse. The new building with new technology, caring professors, and endless resources making the journey at Galen the best decision I have made!

Galen has excellent resources to ensure each student successfully passes the NCLEX on their first try! I love Galen because everyone is there to help you. They have onsite psychologists for free, tutoring, high functioning mannequins and so much more! I have nothing but great things to say!
I am in my second quarter at Galen. So far, I really love the atmospere and learning environment. Everyone is very upfront with you about what you need to do to be successful. This school is difficult, as every nursing program is. If it was easy, it wouldn't be worth it! The only area I would like to see an improvement in is the resource center/library. I really think it would be beneficial to have more study rooms for the students. Also, the cafeteria is great, but is only open until 2. This is really inconvenient for students with classes spread out throughout the day, but atleast the food is good!
