I know, without a doubt, that Galen has prepared me. That this has been the best choice I’ve ever made.
When you come in, you're immediately immersed into the world of nursing. This college is for nurses, by nurses.
I couldn't have asked for a better school. I'd yell it from the rooftops if I could.
Galen invests heavily in simulation technology and offers extensive hands-on education earlier than many other schools.
Galen’s small class sizes provide a more personalized experience, where one-on-one attention is the rule, not the exception.
Galen students start clinical education early in their coursework. Because you have more extensive clinical experiences, you enter the profession prepared to practice.
Unlike many other schools, general education classes are included in the nursing curriculum–you don’t have to take them as a pre-requisite to enter nursing.
Caring, committed faculty teach safe, patient-centered care, are experts in their fields, and are dedicated to the success of every student.
Galen has designed its classes in a revolving schedule, with new classes starting several times per year.
With more than 27,000 graduates from seven campuses, Galen has one of the largest and most successful nursing programs in the country.
Galen is committed to helping each and every student to their end goal of successful practice. Galen knows that your success is our success.
