Good environment with faculty and resources provided to aid and assist in your academic career. Goodwin is an exceptional school with small sized classes which gives you that one on one connection with you and your professor and/or peers. The school hosts a good amount of events throughout the year that range from community service to recreational fun with other students on campus. Considering the cost of tuition of Goodwin College more is expected. The school doesn’t have any sports teams but instead has clubs hosted by students. As for other recreational activities, not much is available. This school has the sort of style that speaks “come in, do your work, graduate and leave”. Not much diversity for student life.
Review Goodwin College
The nursing program is amazing. We get to participate in so much. We have O.R., endo, and I.R. observation days. Any opportunity to accompany a patient to I.C.U., or on any diagnostic test, we're right by their side.
The instructors seek out opportunities for students to gain practical experience. They allow our voices to be heard during safety huddle. They treat us with the utmost respect and value our input.
The staff, in turn, treat us as peers and adjuncts, not as speedbumps in their patient care.
Goodwin makes me a better nurse with every clinical and lecture day.
Being a nursing major is pretty time consuming. Before a student can a apply to the nursing program at Goodwin College, they have to complete prerequisites like math and english, as well as science. The tricky part about the science prerequisites is that there is about 5 sciences which include biology, chemistry, anatomy one and two and others. To complete prerequisites it takes about two years to complete, depending on the students schedule. Besides the road to get to the nursing program its a great a experience and students learn a lot of information that prepares them for the program.
