Tampa Galen RN Program

Posted

Does anyone know if the Tampa Galen LPN to RN program has been nationally accredited yet? I was told they were gonna be in June.

I don't think ASN program is yet. I think that their bachelors program is. From what I heard from a friend the VA will not hire Galen nurses because of that but I could be wronghttp://www.acenursing.us/accreditedprograms/programsearch.asp

They are regionally accredited but not nationally at this time. They have applied and are in the process. From what I've heard maybe early next year. I have also heard that the VA will not hire because of this. However, many other employers will.

This was the same problem I ran into at Jersey College and yes I have heard as well that the VA will not hire anyone from the Jersey College program.I had a couple of students that were currently working at the VA and dropped from Jersey because of the issue. I was also told by my instructor that most of the hospitals would not hire from Jersey but that if I knew someone in the hospital they could pull some strings . I am wrecking my brain trying to figure out the best option.
