Galen College of Nursing

Nursing Programs in San Antonio, TX

Our programs include three main components: theory, which involves classroom or online learning; laboratory, including science and clinical simulation; and clinical, in which students learn while working with real patients in real-life healthcare settings.

We encourage prospective students to schedule an appointment with an Admissions Representative to discuss Galen’s nursing programs and take a tour of the campus. Our personalized approach allows us to get to know you and help you make the decision to best fit your needs.
