September 10, 2018 – Cincinnati, OH – Galen College of Nursing announced today the launch of their CCNE accredited 3-year Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) Degree at the Cincinnati Campus. Offering solely nursing education, Galen is focused on supporting the nursing profession through excellence in education.
This exciting program extends the pathways to nursing available through Galen’s Cincinnati location. “We are always developing ways to meet the needs of students and ultimately, healthcare as a whole,” said Dr. Joan Frey, Academic President. Especially at a time when the U.S. is in the midst of a national nursing shortage, with an increasing need due to an aging population and the retirement of nurses from the Baby Boomer generation, nurses are in high demand. “Our mission is to expand opportunity in nursing education, and by offering more options to become an RN, we support workforce development and a diverse population of students with multiple lifestyle and learning needs.”
Galen’s new program also supports an industry with rising demand for the BSN. “We created an innovative and quality program that will allow students to get into the healthcare workplace with a BSN in a shortened timeframe,” said Judy Rudokas, Dean of Galen College in Cincinnati. “This new 3-year BSN enhances our prelicensure nursing pathways so we can educate more students for entry into professional nursing practice and help meet the needs of our partners in healthcare. We are excited to be taking applications now for our first class start on January 7th.”
