About Galen

About Galen College of Nursing

At Galen, you’ll experience a nursing education experience like no other.

Galen College of Nursing was established by Humana Health Institutes, Inc. in 1989 with a single purpose: to offer excellence in nursing education.

The Galen Experience

Nothing can substitute hands-on learning and simulation in teaching students to translate nursing theory into safe and effective patient care. Acknowledging this as an imperative in providing quality nursing education, Galen invests heavily in simulation technology and offers extensive hands-on education earlier than many other schools.
