Welcome to Pure Nursing

At Galen, nursing is all we teach. It’s all we think about. It’s who we are.

From day one, we start with one goal in mind: preparing you to pass your boards so you can practice the art and science that is nursing. If nursing is for you, you’re in the right place.

Classes at Galen are intentionally small, with lots of one-on-one time. You can talk to your teachers at any time. They want you to seek them out. And they’ll do the same.

We understand our students come from all walks of life. For some it’s a calling. For others, it’s a new career path and a future with greater opportunity.

We’re not just here to teach, we’re here to support you, and we have the people and resources to do just that.

Because Pure Nursing is not just about our unwavering dedication to excellence in nursing education.  Pure Nursing is providing the same excellence, compassion and care in nursing education expected of our students in practice.  Welcome.
