    Jones, not to panic you but I would definately call asap. There are deadlines regardless if you are in for days or nights...for example..the financial aid appointment deadline is this coming friday. The medical shot records are due the 25th. I called and asked the status of my application and that's when they transferred me to Carol. She was really good at getting right back to me. I would think for sure yours would have gotten to you by now with the deadlines approaching. Let me know what you find out...

    Believe me I have been freaking out! Called today and talked to Carol and they had my address wrong, wrong city and Zip (not sure how they came up with that address). They mailed it out to the wrong address and never received it back so they assumed I did not accept the offer. Worst part is that someone probably has it, and it has my information on it. They mailed it out to me this morning and I made my financial aid appt for next Friday. Does anyone know when the orientation is for April LPN days? I need to know so I can take off work, but won't be getting my packet until Friday at the latest.

    I graduated from Galen in Florida a few years ago and am planning on applying for their RN bridge program. Does anyone know if they got their official accreditation for the RN program and if they are still making the RN students wear those awful white nursing caps???? I love it there but hated the nursing caps with a passion. Anyone know??

    Supposedly they are not accredited. All they will tell you is that "They have agreements with a few other colleges that you can go to for you BSN." Most people I know that went there for their LPN are not going back to bridge to RN. Most people are to worried that without being "officially accredited" then they would do all the hard work and not be able to keep going.

    Hello there, I am wanting to know if Galen do a credit check along with the background check ? Or what all do they do when completing a background check and why is it so expensive ? Do you know what company completes the background check for Galen ?

    Hi jsadler827! You will use your paperback Fundamentals book in 2nd quarter. You won't use the hardback one again though.
