Student Services

committed to providing superior educational resources

Galen is a nursing college that is committed to providing resources to help our students succeed. From personal and academic counseling to student resource and computer study centers. And, as always, your Galen faculty and staff are available and willing to sit down and offer one-on-one help with coursework, clinical, and career questions.

ACADEMIC ADVISING

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.

PERSONAL COUNSELING

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.

STUDENT SUCCESS COORDINATORS

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 every staff member goes above and beyond the job of educating you.

LIBRARY AND STUDENT RESOURCE CENTER

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.

SPECIAL ACCOMMODATIONS

Galen provides accessibility and support to individuals with disabilities, and complies with all state and federal laws. Any applicant or student who wishes to request an accommodation may do so by contacting their campus Section 504/Title IX Coordinator.

CAREER SERVICES

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.
