This information is current at the time of publication.

Galen College of Nursing has been approved to participate in the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements.


All students are encouraged to first attempt to resolve complaints following Galen’s Resolution of Grievances Policy, published in the Student Catalog.

If an issue cannot be resolved internally, students in the Online MSN Program or Online RN to BSN Program may file a complaint with Kentucky’s portal agency for NC-SARA, the Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education (CPE).
