Galen is outstanding school. Their statistics for the graduation rate compared to the basic 4 year degree programs within the Nursing programs is higher. The average graduation rate for RN students is 90%. I enjoy learning and going to school there. The only things I may like to see change is that there be more financial aid communication between the students and financial aid people, more resources to make college seem less stressful, and I wish they were a dorm college. Otherwise, I am very pleased with my college choice. I could not find a better college fit for me. Great teacher staff and all my fellow students are all very helping and so nice. No one lets anyone struggle, we all are in the same boat and we all understand the struggle. It's juts a amazing experience at Galen and I still have abut a year and a half left there.
Review Your College
My sister went to this school and said it was a wonderful experience so I started going here. However my experience has not been the same. The policies are constantly changing and the cost has gone up 3 times since I have been enrolled. I think the school, in earlier years, was great as far as academics. It seems now, however, they are more concerned with making money off of the students. If you don't pass the HESI they make you sit out a quarter and also want another $100 entrance fee and $100 background check. They also told my younger sister she would be able to transfer all her credits and graduate in 18months with her RN. However, after she signed papers they said they wouldn't accept her lab credits from USI and it would take her 2 years to get her RN and slapped a unclear $500 balance on her tab. Galen is great with their innovations but they aren't great when it comes to the way they handle business or being student advocates.
When I met with the admissions ladies the first time, they had me fill out some paperwork and asked me why i wanted to go into nursing. My admissions lady also told me up front that this program is very difficult but that her sister was already enrolled into the program and even though she says it's the hardest thing she's ever done in her life, she is glad she's doing it. Once i was ready to leave the admissions office, she handed me a print out of how much money everything would cost me as well as a highlighted checklist of things i needed to complete in the weeks to come before i meet with my financial advisor. When i had finished, my FA contacted me to schedule an appointment to go over the choices i had picked and what the best route for me would be. The communication between the admissions office and the financial aide people is great! I'm glad i picked such a good school!
