When you take on this educational journey, it’s good to know you have resources and support when you need it. From your advisor to your professor, to the staff of GSC and services of TriHealth, we are here to help you succeed.
Student Success Center
A multi-media learning center offers a variety of audiovisual materials, equipment, and computers for classes, testing, and individual use. We encourage students to utilize this space for studying in groups or individually.
Additional computers are located in all student lounges to assist students with their research needs.
Advising and Academic Assistance – All Degree Programs
Advising is an important aspect of each student’s academic success. The student-centered model encompasses an assigned faculty member within their respective program upon enrollment. Instructors are appointed to assist students in the development of their educational plan and to provide support and encouragement as they progress through the college curriculum to graduation.
If a student encounters a problem that impacts their success in their course of study, they are encouraged to contact their advisor. The student’s advisor should assess the problem and, along with the Student Academic Support Specialist, help develop and implement a plan to overcome it, wherever possible.
Additional resources including, but not limited to peer mentors, tutors, Financial Aid, the Student Assistance Program, and 504 accommodations may be appropriate to resolve the issue(s) the student and advisor have identified as an impediment to success at the College.
Career Services provides information for students and alumni to explore career directions. Since career development is preparation for life, our mission is to help you gain self-understanding and connect your interests, values, and skills with knowledge about careers and life beyond Good Samaritan College of Nursing and Health Science. In support of that mission, we build relationships with faculty, colleagues, and local institutions and serve as a resource for employers and graduate schools. We offer career workshops, mock interviewing opportunities, and speed networking events to prepare students for the next step in their career paths.
Good Samaritan College of Nursing and Health Science is respectful of students’ rights and responsibilities in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) as amended by the ADA Amendment Act of 2008 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Any qualified student with a disability may request an accommodation to ensure that the academic program does not discriminate against or have the effect of discriminating against that student. The disability/disorder must not prohibit the student from meeting the course outcomes. To determine eligibility for academic accommodations, the College requires current and relevant documentation from a qualified professional with expertise in the area of the diagnosed disability/disorder that establishes a disability and its impact on the student and confirms the need for each accommodation requested.
The Student Success Department is dedicated to empowering students with disabilities through the delivery of accommodations and support services.
Students with disabilities who need academic accommodations or other specialized services while attending GSC will receive accommodations to meet their individual needs as well as advocacy assistance on disability-related issues. We are strongly committed to maintaining an environment that guarantees students with disabilities full access to educational programs, activities, and facilities.
Good Samaritan College offers a Virtual Bookstore, allowing students to order their Textbook, School Supplies and Uniform online through the Joseph Beth Bookstore.
Library Services of the College serves the entire TriHealth community. With two locations at Good Samaritan Hospital and Bethesda North Hospital campuses, the library’s goal is to support education, patient care, and research.
The Library holdings are located on the third floor of the Good Samaritan Hospital campus and the ground floor of the Bethesda Hospital campus. The library collection includes books, journals and research materials in print and electronic format for fields of nursing, medicine, science, humanities, and technology. Students may access all the resources at either location. As a member of the Southwest Ohio and Neighboring Libraries (SWON) consortium, students, faculty, and staff also have use of the 44 member libraries.
Good Samaritan College Security is staffed by the TriHealth Security department which has officers dedicated to protecting the safety of students, visitors, patients, and staff. Our parking lots are well lit and patrolled by the officers throughout the day and evening.
GSC emphasizes the importance of student health and well-being. Health evaluations and consultations are available through the TriHealth Team Member Health Service. This service is available for hospital-related illnesses or injuries. Students can be referred to a physician who meets their needs. Students must pay for medical care. Health insurance is highly recommended for all students.
We offer students counseling services through the Student Assistance Program (SAP), which offers one-on-one sessions with a licensed counselor to address a variety of issues including stress, anxiety, depression, work/life and family issues.
Counseling is available to all students and their dependents without charge. In addition to individual counseling, the program allows for group work and programs relating to the needs and interests of the students.
Students with specific, difficult to treat counseling needs, such as eating disorders, substance abuse/addictions, and other complicated needs will be referred to appropriate community professionals and/or resources.
Celebrating Constitution and Citizenship Day
All educational institutions that receive federal funds celebrate Constitution and Citizenship Day on September 17 of each year. Constitution and Citizenship Day commemorates the signing of the U.S. Constitution and honors those who have become U.S. citizens by coming of age or naturalization. That date is significant because, on September 17, 1787, the delegates to the Constitutional Convention met for the last time to sign the United States Constitution.
