It’s a great school, and great people. Everyone I have talked to has been helpful and so very kind. I can’t wait to meet all the people I will be in class with. The campus is so clean and beautiful. they even have a cafeteria in the building. I’m excited to get started next month!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I currently just switched from a college I have been going to for 2 years to Galen and I am beyond impressed. I truly didn't think I would find a "home" and "family" in my college career again but I was by far proven wrong. Galen is welcoming, accepting, and so much fun to be at.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Galen is a little expensive, but the academics are great including class size, peers, and professors. The only thing I don't like is that not all classes are available on grounds. Also, this quarter they switched testing format from paper to computers in which you can only advance forward. This makes testing quite challenging.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

There are the most AMAZING professors around. They understand l, they talk, they explain but most of all they hear you. They take the time to explain what you don’t know. No matter how many times to does take. The professors want you to learn it, live it, breath it and even better understand it. The care truly care about their students and have interactions with them. Whether, it be in theory, lab, clinicals or testing; they support you all the way; cheering you along the whole way!! The help you when you struggle, pick you back up and help remind you why you are there! The professors are amazing! You are taught best practice nursing, and are the most sought after nurse before graduation! It’s tough, but it is well worth it...

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Galen College of Nursing is obviously not for everyone. If you are wanting to do chemical engineering, this is not the school for you but if you are going into nursing, I highly recommend Galen. Nursing is their main focus and they do everything to make sure you are going to be a successful nurse.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Galen's class sizes are small. The curriculum is tough and since I work full time and attend classes in the evening, finding enough time to study can be challenging. The faculty wants to see you succeed, so they are always available to help with ideas, time management and tutoring. I truly feel that when I leave Galen, I will be able to hit the nursing floors running.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

Galen Health Institute?s nursing program is very direct, fast paced, and passionate about their curriculum and ensures that students are getting the proper education and knowledge needed to enter the world of nursing, in all aspects.

Describe the students at your school.

Due to the intensity and pace of the Galen's nursing program, students are more than helpful to one another whether they are students further along in the program to students who are new to the program.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Looking back, I would have tried a lot harder in high school and set forth more effort into finding my true calling in life. I would have studied for better grades to excel in school and earn scholarships. I would have not become a single parent at such a young age and definitely volunteered more time to the community. Extensive research should be done when choosing a college. Things like financial aid, scholarships, and loans would be a priority when making my final decision. Some schools, such as Galen Health Institutes don't offer students the opportunity to apply for scholarships on campus. It is quite a task to juggle school full time along with 2 part time jobs and being a single parent can be quite a challenge. Note to self: be very detailed when planning life ahead, education is the main priority.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

I went to University of Louisville and I just switched to Galen. I like how it is hands on and you start doing the nursing classes and clinicals right away instead of having to wait for you to get all your pre requisits done and then be accepted to the nursing school.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would have to give myself the advice of to study hard! I thought college was going to be easy and come natural to me like high school did, but boy was I wrong! I would tell myself to study hard and to go to class. School needs to come first before anything else. This is what is going to get you into your career and teach you everything you need to know about what you want to do with your life. If you mess it up now you are taking a chance of messing up your future after graduating college. I would give my self this same advice as well as wany other senior in high school. You have to apply your self and try really hard. Go to class and study as much as possible. It is nothing like high school and you have to make your self do well or in the end you probably won't.

What kind of person should attend this school?

People who are going to school directily for nursing should attent this school.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

I started out going to a big university, University of Louisville, had I attended many classes that had over 100 people in them. The university and these classes were overwealming and I did not like it. So, in April I plan to attend Galen College of Nursing. It is a small school which is just focused on nursing.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

The Universtiy of Louisville is mainly known for their athletics and some of their academic areas. Galen is known only for nursing which is good because that is their only focus. They are focused only on teaching their students how to be well equipped nurses.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would tell myself to research schools a lot more than I did now. I went to the University of Louisville for engineering and I did not like it at all. Engineering is a hard field to graduate from and the classes you take are very intense. I then switch to teaching and I found out after one semester, teaching had responsibilities that I was not ready to take. I then decided nursing was what I wanted to do and it is something that I can see myself doing for a very long time. "You need to think about what you want to do for the rest of your life and stick with it. Do not waste a year and a half going to a big university and not getting anything from it!"
