Galen College of Nursing - Cincinnati Reviews
Very expensive and some teachers lack experience, but you will learn, some instructors are excellent. Staff is always saying how they care about you, but no one helps except for a 5-minute meeting with your academic counselor. The Cincinnati campus is overcrowding with students, but they're not expanding. They have converted dry labs to classrooms due to the fact they just keep letting students in; now there's no where to practice CPEs. It obvious they are more interested in the money now. I would give it three stars if it weren't for their terrible choices of clinical sites, some are being shut down or unsafe.
The staff is here for you, to help and teach you what is needed for your goal to happen. Small classes instructors stay to help guide you if you have any questions. Don’t hesitate if you don’t understand a lesson topic.
Small class, instructors have worked in the fields they teach. Won't to see you complete and achieve your goals, to become a nurse.
I have been a student for almost a year, it has been a great experience so far. You do have to put in the time to really study in order to be successful. Teachers are very helpful and staff in the office are very nice as well. It is a tough program so you have to be willing to put in some effort.
from the moment I walked in I felt like I mattered. Everything was done with organization and quickness. I went the week before school started and was able to get to class that next week. The teachers are so nice and has been there a long time so they know what they are doing. The faculty and staff are very helpful. The students that go there are focused on their work and getting through school. The staff and teachers are there to help you with anything you need as well as the students.
Galen College in Cincinnati has the friendliest people. Everyone is SO helpful! The professors are willing to stay after class with you or meet with you in their free time to go over material that you do not understand.
Galen really cares about student success. You are just not another student in a class room. The instructors are there to help you graduate.
Galen is a fast track school that takes dedication and discipline. There are some flaws still to the program as it is changing to better itself. It is now accredited which was a huge celebration. There needs to be some better clinical sites offered to the students. Overall a good learning experience and is teaching me a lot.
You don't have as many options for class time when choosing, the campus isn't that big so you kind of have to get what they give you.
Professors work with you and are very understanding.
It's just very hard if you don't study. The school offers many resources and will help you graduate you just have to be willing to put in your effort as well.
Focuses only on nursing. Every class at Galen is geared toward nursing.
It was well advertised that the ADN program is a day program, so I was well aware of this in terms of scheduling for my work. Galen was really willing to allow me to transfer in credits from other schools.
I haven't worked with anyone in particular, but there are students who receive job offers from clinical sites pending passing the NCLEX
Most of the class sizes are small (<25). Some of the science courses have a max of about 40 students.
Job prospects are high if you're willing to apply to every med-surge job and agree to enroll in a BSN program with your job offer.
The instructors really care about the success of their students. Every instructor has weekly enrichment sessions to go over material learned in class with students seeking help.
