Appointments can be scheduled with faculty members for academic assistance. Students pursuing a BSN degree program are assigned an advisor and should meet with their advisors at least once per quarter.
A career in nursing is challenging. Life is, too. Because Galen is committed to helping students progress successfully through both academic and personal challenges, a school counselor is available to provide confidential guidance for a wide variety of issues.
Each Galen campus has a Student Success Coordinator dedicated to helping students achieve and excel in their nursing degree program. Student Success Coordinators work in conjunction with our faculty, staff and counselors to improve the overall student experience.
Nursing is much more than a job, which is why the Galen staff strive to go above and beyond to educate students.
Galen facilities include not only modern classrooms and state-of-the-art clinical learning laboratories, but also a spacious student resource center with a library; computer lab; counseling office; designated areas for individual testing; group study space; and lounge seating. The library is also an optimal location for quiet study.
The Galen Library and Student Resource Center is open to all enrolled students and graduates studying for State Board Examinations, as well as copying and printing study and testing materials.
Galen hosts a variety of employer visits for current students and graduates to advance their career in nursing. Healthcare industry representatives regularly visit our campuses for the opportunity to meet personally with our students. We also provide additional job placement assistance, such as job interview tips and help with résumé writing.
Galen graduates are well-respected in their communities. Local employers continue to provide positive feedback about our graduates throughout their nursing careers, many of whom have been hired by some of the leading employers in their communities. While placement is not guaranteed, assistance is made available to you as requested.
Nursing is more than a career; it’s a calling. We understand this, and work to fulfill our students’ needs on both levels.
