At Galen College of Nursing, students find an exceptionally supportive nursing education experience. It’s part of our Pure Nursing philosophy. Galen is a nursing college committed to providing superior educational resources. And, as always, your Galen faculty and staff are available and willing to sit down and offer one-on-one help with coursework, clinical, and career questions. Nursing is much more than a job, which is why every staff member goes above and beyond the job of educating you.
Appointments can be scheduled with faculty members for academic assistance. Students pursuing BSN degrees are assigned an advisor and are expected to meet with their advisors at least once per quarter.
Galen believes communication is a vital part of the learning process. Frequent student emails and the “My Galen” Student Portal keep our students informed of campus events, school activities, and community service projects.
One of our most valuable resources for nursing degree students is the availability of multiple research databases that can be accessed from the computers or remotely, 24/7, from the Galen library website. Students can also bring in their laptops and use the Galen Wi-Fi network.
Additional resources are also available on Canvas, an online learning platform that Galen utilizes to provide digital access to course materials. The library uses Canvas
to make available supplementary digital learning materials such as clinical make-up
packets, study aids, YouTube videos, and podcasts.
