Galen Gave Me the Flexibility I Needed: Kayla Huff — Galen Stories

— Audio Transcript —

If someone asked me if they should become a nurse, I would tell them ‘yes.’ It’s the most rewarding job that you can have and if they ask where they should go, I would recommend Galen. My name is Kayla Huff. I’ve gotten my LPN, my ADN, and my BSN from Galen.

Why was a BSN important to you?

I decided to go for my BSN because that was the next step in furthering my education to get to my end goal of becoming a nurse practitioner.

Why choose Galen’s Online RN to BSN Program?

I chose Galen’s online BSN program because it gave me the ability to be a full-time mom and to be a full-time nurse. I was able to put my daughter to bed and then stay up and do my homework, and it just gave me the flexibility I needed.

How did you keep in touch with your teachers?

I communicated with the teachers through the online program, by email. I’ve had teachers FaceTime me to go over topics that I didn’t understand. They would do a web conference with the whole class. Nursing is challenging.

Did you feel prepared?

You never know what each day is going to be. It’s never the same and Galen gave me that confidence that I knew what I was doing, and I could conquer any situation.

What does your family think?

This is actually graduation — with my BSN. This is my daughter, and she wants to be a nurse when she grows up. She’s like, “I’m going to be just like you, mommy.”
