Looks like Galen is one of the proprietary (for-profit business) technical/vocational schools
. They do not have NLNAC or CCNE accreditation:
It's important to be aware that credits from this type of school often are not transferable to other schools (that's because they are accredited by different organizations than those that accredit "regular" colleges and universities). There's even a statement about that in the FAQ section of the Galen website. While many people start nursing school
with the idea that they never want to go back to school and will only want to do basic, bedside nursing for the rest of their career, many, many
nurses have had the experience of starting out with that thought and then, after a few years of experience, noticing how much wider a range of career possibilities and employment opportunities they would have with a BSN or even graduate education. If you take your original nursing education at a proprietary tech/voc school and want to return to school later on for a higher degree, there is a good chance (and Galen is already warning you about this!) that you would basically have to start "from scratch" because "regular" schools won't transfer in any of your previous credits/courses.
It's v. difficult for me to imagine any justification, in this day and age, for paying tuition to an unaccredited nursing program with credits that probably won't transfer to another school ...
