Hands-on Education in Real-world Nursing Environments
At Galen, nursing education goes far beyond the classroom. In addition to hands-on experience in our clinical learning labs, science laboratories and simulation center, our students gain valuable practical experience through clinical education.
Our clinicals offer extensive and diverse experiences with leading healthcare providers in the community. Galen students work with real patients, alongside real nurses and doctors. They have the opportunity to experience and explore a variety of specialties and settings, including medical-surgical, pediatrics, mental health and more. There’s no better way to learn the ins and outs of the job — and it’s a big reason Galen graduates are so well-prepared for practice.
Every Nurse by Galen begins their professional nursing career with the confidence, knowledge and skills they need to succeed in real-world nursing environments. From the first day on the job, they understand what it takes to be a successful nurse.
