    I've heard so many bad reviews about Galen College reguarding their staff, finanical aspect, and education. They said in the reviews and current students Galen admission and directors will seem like they care when you meet for a tour (the first process of entering) and leave hanging on the rest steps of the way. Your credits doesnt switch over.. So you are stuck with your lack of education and lost mainly of your money towards your education. So it is a waste of time. Those reviews were so common and barely a few good ones! That makes me nervous because Education matters!

    As the above post stated, Galen is a accredited by the KBN now which is a good thing. As for the school itself I cannot vouch and it's too soon to see the product they've produced. Good luck!

    Galen College of Nursing was awarded regional accreditation in the summer of 2013 by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges which is a top level body that provides accreditation to many major colleges and universities in our region.

    We are also accredited nationally by the Commission of the Council on Occupational Education.

    And we are very excited that The Associate Degree program on Louisville’s campus is a candidate for accreditation by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN, formerly NLNAC).

    While the transfer of credit is always up to the receiving school, SACSCOC accreditation should allow for more seamless transfer between many institutions.

    We are proud that our graduates are employed by a long list of key healthcare providers in our state and are happy to talk about this if there are any questions. Our Career Services Cooridnator is Debra Rayman and she can be reached at 502-410-6230 if you have questions.

    Also, we have a new Online RN to BSN program, launched last summer, and are proud to say that it is one of a kind in instructional design, interactivity and mobility.

    We are continually looking at all aspects of our programs and processes to ensure quality and make changes when and where we need to. We hate to hear of any bad expereinces and would love the opportunity to talk if you have a specific issue or concern. If it is regarding admissions, Terri Thomas is our Director of Admissions and Dr. Steve Hyndman, our Provost, can help with any acadmic or program concerns -- they are both happy to talk about the admissions process, transfer credit or academics. They can be reached by calling the main campus line at 502-410-6200.

    When will your AECN accrediting process be complete and determination made? IS it solely for the Louisville campus?
