Galen is a really challenging as well as supportive school. The student resource center and student success liaison staff are great! I've really enjoyed my time here as a student, I've made a lot of friends and it's true that they really are all about nursing. The entire staff from the security guards to the desk managers and teachers are so approachable and truly helpful and caring. Its's been a totally challenging yet rewarding experience. The student nurse association is also active and a fun place to meet people serious about school and nursing. The school provides regular updates on job fairs and ongoing opportunities for students and graduates. In my opinion the school is well worth the tuition and I'm glad I chose Galen.

Galen college of nursing is dedicated to helping you succeed and become top nurses, rather it be LPN, RN, or BSN. They are there for you if you need any help or assistance with classes or study habits. I feel I can count on all of my instructors and I believe they will do anything they can to help you to succeed. They are all very friendly and and feel comfortable. They ease your mind of any doubt you have of yourself and turn it around into positive vibes. They work with you if you run into obstacles along the way, such as a pregnancy. I have seen first and the things they do for the students and make them feel at ease.
