(Cincinnati, OH) – June 5, 2007 – Galen College of Nursing is proud to announce its new campus in the greater Cincinnati area, located at 100 EBusiness Way, Suite 200, right off I-275 near Sharonville. Galen offers a nationally-accredited post-secondary education focused solely on excellence in nursing education.
“We’re very excited about the new Cincinnati campus,” said Mark Vogt, CEO of Galen College of Nursing. “With the nation-wide nursing shortage, a school like Galen that focuses only on nursing is very important. Our resources are completely dedicated to the nursing program, so there’s no competition for resources like at other schools. Galen nursing students really benefit from that. They also benefit from our excellent job placement rates. Nurses are in high demand and will continue to be for at least the next 20 years, so it’s easy to jump right into their new careers once they graduate.”
Galen College of Nursing, which offers both an LPN and RN program, has graduated more than 4,000 students at its campuses in Louisville, Kentucky, St. Petersburg, Florida, and San Antonio, Texas. Galen nurse graduates have consistently maintained above-average pass rates on licensure exams.
“Our students can receive an Associate’s degree of Science in Nursing in only 21 months, and LPN certification much sooner,” said Vogt. “We offer an intensive program, very focused on hands-on clinical training. And no prerequisites are needed to get started—students just need to pass the entrance exam to enroll.”
Galen College of Nursing’s new 16,000-square-foot-facility will feature three classrooms, a clinical simulation lab, and a science lab, with plans for more to be added in the near future. The cutting-edge facility will also include several state-of-the-art training models on which students can hone their techniques on “patients” with a myriad of clinical conditions, from minor flesh wounds to heart conditions to tracheotomies, and much more.
There is currently no waiting list for enrollment; however classes at Galen College of Nursing typically fill very quickly so those interested in furthering their nursing education should contact the admissions office soon at 877-GALEN-53. Student Orientation will be held on October 10th and classes will begin on October 22nd. There will also be an Open House in November.
