"From the years of 1996-1998 I attended the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston and graduated with a bachelors in nursing. I lived and studied in Galveston for both years. The city this school is in makes it possible for you to find affordable housing off campus. I lived in some apartments about 10 miles from campus and spent my time de-stressing by rollerblading on the seawall. I lived in a two bedroom apartment and shared rent with another female student that I found by placing an ad in the school newspaper. She was not in nursing school but it would have been pretty beneficial to seek out a fellow nursing student to study with. I spoke of de-stressing earlier and wanted to mention that UTMB has a great gym on campus that is free for students should you release stress in this way. Another wonderful thing about the nursing program at UTMB is that they have free peer tutoring. I not only sought out this resource for my own benefit but also was a pharmacology tutor for my classmates. Being a tutor looks great on a resume. I also remember seeking out free guidance on test taking. I was able to sit one on one with someone who specialized in test taking and she was able to bring my grades up. I graduated with a 3.5 and was enlisted with Sigma Theta Tau because of my high GPA. There is also a hospital on campus that hires students. So I was able to do a work-study program while attending school. It allowed me to gain experience in my field of study before graduation so I was able to build my resume. I highly and proudly recommend UTMB for your medical studies for the reasons mentioned above."

"UTMB is a school that from the first day of school started to prepare their students for passing the NCLEX and being a safe and knowledgeable registered nurse. I feel very pleased with my education and felt more than ready to start working as a nurse when I graduated."
