The nursing program is more challenging than other schools, and there is no point in studying here as you will not get paid more for more challenging studies. This program is more difficult because I compared my school work with a friend who went elsewhere. George Brown's nursing faculty are also not good; quite a few instructors and coordinators do not care about students- there are many many traumatized students from their experience with GBC nursing faculty.
