Hello, all! I just recently got accepted into Galen College of Nursing in St. Pete, FL. I'm concerned, however, about the whole accreditation thing. To be honest, I don't even know what being accredited means. :/ I know the only ones that matter are the CCNE and NLNAC accreditation. I was hoping to go to USF to get my BSN, but I was informed that the credits at Galen will not transfer there. I was really bummed out about that, because Galen informed me that they were accredited, by SACS accreditation, so I could go to any 4 year college for my BSN. The admissions guy at USF warned me not to get too far into the program if it is not accredited, because if I wanna go further with my education (which I do) I'll basically have to start over from scratch! I've heard pretty good things about Galen, and I know people who go there that love it. I just don't want to have to start over again...Can anyone help guide me?
