The Reading Hospital School of Health Sciences Reviews

In terms of my thoughts on the Reading Hospital School of Health Sciences, it was a great initial experience that became increasingly challenging. The colleagues that went to school with me were friendly and inclusive, which made me feel like I fit in well. The student mentors that also occupied the school with me were pretty friendly and helpful as well, providing advice and tips towards success. The professors that I have had so far have been quite helpful with their investment in the success of students. They are all open for questions if a student is confused about an assignment or topic of discussion. In fact, some of them are even willing to arrange special meetings outside of school with the students during their office hours at Alvernia University if it is necessary. Overall, if an individual is in search of a school to attend for the purpose of entering the medical field, then the Reading Hospital School of Health Sciences does not fall short from being recommendable.
Review The Reading Hospital School of Health Sciences
Absolutely love this school! Recommend to anyone going in the nursing field. The program is very hands on and the class sizes are very small which gives the students a good relationship with their professors.
I am currently not in college,I am still a high school Junior. However,I have been looking at five colleges that offer Nursing. I plan to be a L&D nurse (Labor and Delivery),and currently taking Anatomy and Physiology in high school to get a head start because I know that class is required for college. I want to get a sense of what to expect beforehand. Nursing major,or any medical related major is one of the most difficult majors to study because it requires knowledge on the human body and being able to treat and diagnose patients with accuracy. But,I honestly am headstrong on what I want to be and I do not see myself doing another major such as Criminal Justice,Mathematics,etc. Medical majors offer the most job shadowing opportunities,I am able to see what goes on throughout the day in a hospital and observe how the nurses and doctors take care of their patients and how they record/read medical records.
