Galen School of Nursing - Tampa Bay Reviews

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!

So far, it's been ok. I have mainly online courses that helps as far as scheduling and work goes, but however, the "busy work" for those classes can be well...busy work. Otherwise, I have had a positive experience in class and have met some pretty interesting people. I'm glad I made the decision to go to Galen for my LPN-ADN bridge program. Galen's online and campus classes make it possible for me to achieve my goals and work at the same time.
I absolutely love my school. It is expensive to go here, but I have learned more than I have ever learned in my whole life. So in my opinion, it is worth it is nursing is truly your passion. Like any school there are good and bad teachers, but more good than bad here. They are a growing school, so there are a few things they still need to work on. It is an accelerated program, but the discipline it takes to make it in this program has helped shape me into a better and more resilient person. It is difficult, but it is rewarding. Come here if you're looking to change your life for the better.
