I have toured campus before doing paperwork and making any final decisions. I was very pleased with the environment. The classroom sizes are average, they are not too large nor too small. I think I will have an opportunity to get one on one contact with my professors, that makes me very satisfied. The students are very friendly and welcoming. The library will definitely be my spot, it is very clean, quiet, large, and looks like a great place to focus. I am looking forward to starting my courses soon and being successful as a nurse. Caring is my calling.
Review Galen College of Nursing - San Antonio
Class sizes for days are very large. The class size for evenings. is very small. I switched from day classes to nights, so I've seen a significant difference as far as size goes. My night class only has 22 people in it. The professors are a wealth of knowledge and know a great deal of what their talking about. Information in class is mostly relayed via powerpoint and media (videos), but don't think you can get away with not reading the textbook.
The instructors are what make this school great. The school is very pricey and it can be unorganized at times, but most of the instructors have lots of experience under their belts and are very dedicated to the success of their students. If you ever need any help or have questions, there are plenty of resources available and the staff is great with following up with your to make sure they are answered regardless of what the question is, if you need help it is available.
