The Education You’ll Receive
“I know I’m qualified, I know I’m well trained and that goes back to my affinity to Good Sam. The base I got at the School, it was a true foundation. I want young nurses to know you really can and should have big dreams. “
The Future Opportunities You’ll Encounter
The Good Samaritan Hospital School of Nursing laid a strong foundation for a career that has taken me places I never even dreamed of! The expectation was that we would not be satisfied with “good enough”, that there was always something more to learn.

The Pride You’ll Have as an Alumni
” I see the older alumni and they’re so proud to have come here, many of them have had such wonderful careers. I think we’ll be the same in the years to come – proud of our school and proud of our work.”
The Critical Thinking Skills You’ll Gain
“When you do the smaller venues, you many times have to make the call on what the problem is and how to treat it. It’s almost scary. But, with my training, I received first at GSHSN and then in the TriHealth ER, I’m confident in what I’m doing.”
The Confidence You’ll Discover in Yourself
“So much of what I do as a line umpire, I have applied from my nursing training and experience. When I was at school, I learned how important it was to be confident in yourself and your abilities. Instructors challenged me to make sure I was prepared. As a line umpire, the same theory applies. I must be confident, prepared and react immediately. I’ve had a lot of training and experience to know how to correctly make the call.”
The Clinical Opportunities You’ll Experience in a Hospital-Based Program
The Nursing Education I received as a student at Good Samaritan, the formal classroom information combined with the wealth of practical experience from Nurse Educators who cared propelled me into the real world of bedside Nursing as prepared for the challenges as I could ever hope to be. Knowing that my instructors had that real-world experience of what occurs every time a Nurse encounters a Patient helped me build confidence that I could emulate them. To those Nurses who chose to bring new people into the profession as well as to the school and administrators who built and empowered the faculty, I am deeply indebted. I will always be proud that I am a Good Sam Graduate.
