Galen College of Nursing - San Antonio Reviews

My experience at galen has just started but the school is excellent. The school is on a quarter system so courses are fast paced. Classes are decently sized, not too big or too small. Professors are knowledgeable, experienced, and willing to help students understand their role as a future nurse in and out of lectures. Courses are tough but manageable if you put in the time. As far as the financial aspect goes the school is pretty pricey. Financial aid is available but only covers so much per quarter with out of pocket costs being pretty high. There are scholarships available through galen, which can help offset the out of pocket cost if you’re lucky enough to be awarded one. Overall, the school is great and worth it despite the financial aspect.

This is my Second Bachelor's of Science degree and I can not imagine completing it anywhere else. Galen invests time in it's students and ensure that no student is left behind. Not only is it veteran friendly, but it truly teaches its students the value a nurse has in each patients life. Galen has managed to instill discipline while still allowing flexibility for the working adults. This nursing is definitely one to consider if you plan on attending one in San Antonio, TX.
The Instructors at Galen are very knowledgeable, patient and love teaching future nurses. They are always willing to help a student better understand the material and give different ideas on how to study for the material being taught. But the student needs to ask for the help. I had an Instructor also show me how I can better manage my time in studying, work ,school & family time. I felt completely safe on campus. Galen also has hybrid classes that works out for me perfectly .
