So far so good, had a good experience so far with admissions department. Very detailed with what is required to admit. Virtual tour of campus was outstanding. The follow up is good now. Looking forward to speaking to some one in the financial aid office to know what’s expected with cost planning.
Do not attend Galen. This is a school that does not care about their students, especially the working student. They are money hungry, not open to suggestions and they make up policies as they please. It is unorganized, most teachers are incompetent, and the overall atmosphere and morale within the walls of Galen is a joke. If you try to ask questions or get answers about anything policy related, or even to see your exam after you take a test to review what you got wrong, you get told "no" and slapped on the wrist for not "studying hard enough" or "not paying attention the chart on page 362". The teachers don't know what is on the exam, because of their testing committee which makes up exams, and then the teachers are expected to teach classes about content they're not sure is being tested. They make you do a lot of busy work and it is all for nothing. It does not add to your grade, but it does hurt you. You must maintain a 74% in EVERY aspect (homework, discussion posts, clinical packets, etc...) but it doesn't help you if you get 100's on everything because the only thing that counts for a grade are your exams. So full time workers, mothers, and professionals have to put aside more time from their schedule to do busy work that does not aid our learning. Instead of supporting the students when they voice their concerns, the Dean, teachers, and other administrative personnel just turn a blind eye to situations and call it "policy". A large percentage of students are failing classes by the second exam of the quarter because the content being "taught" by the teachers and being focused on is not what is being tested. This school sets students up for failure. When i reached out to the dean about this months ago, she left me on read. It is so unprofessional, i feel like I attend a middle school rather than a professional college. I withdrew my ADN-BSN application from here immediately because i refuse to spend another penny on this joke of an organization they call a college. If I could give it less than 1 star, i would.
I love it so far. Covid kind of makes it hard to not be in class in person and I am a hands on learner so I can not wait until we get to go back to in person classes! Other than that the teachers are always there when you need them. So teachers are great some are not.
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...

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!"
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.
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.
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.
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.
This College is accelerated! Classes cover semesters within 11 weeks and 2 days!
People who are going to school directily for nursing should attent this school.
Someone that does not do well in a fast paced environment or that is not a hands on learner would most likely not do well at Galen.
