*BBFRN* Galen College question - page 4

I've read in a previous post you've written that you are a former Galen Instructor. I was wondering if you could tell me what to expect from Galen. I've read horrible things about other instructors/schools on this board,... Read More

    Hi Jsadler! I actually live in Sellersburg, so the location is great for me. My husband has his clinicals in Louisville, near Fern Valley Rd. So he has more travel time than me. They have a new rule that couples cannot go to clinicals together anymore, because one couple got in a horrible fight at a clinical. They ruined it for all of us!

    I would actually travel though and not go to Kindred!

    You can always make a request about your schedule or clinical location being close to home, but the registrar always says, "I can try, but I can't make any promises". Most of the people that I know in school are going to be traveling pretty far for clinicals.

    For right now though, the clinicals are only one day a week, about 8 weeks out of the 12 week quarter. So it' s only 8 times in 3 months. I don't know about the rest of the quarters.

    I hope that helps!

    The issue is that several of the local hospitals have stopped accepting LPN students for clinicals...it's political, as far as I can tell. You'll get more local clinical sites when you get to the RN part of the program.

    Hi BBFRN! That makes sense to me. I have heard that during our pedicatric and delivery clinicals, we will be very limited to what we can do, hands-on. I guess that the hospitals have to be careful when it comes to children and babies.

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
