U of L or Galen College of Nursing? Please advise!
Hello, I will be moving to Louisville from Cincinnati in the next month or so. I am 33 and finally have the opportunity to go to school to become an RN! I have only heard/read poor things about Galen in Cincinnati, but I have no information regarding the staff/classes from the Louisville location. I know there is not a waiting list for Galen and their program is accelerated, and it's quite costly, but I'm more concerned about the education than the price. Also, I have taken English 101/102 at a community college in 1996, which exceeds the amount of time I can transfer the credits to Galen. Does anyone know if I can test out of English with that school? English is my forte, and I would rather test out of it, if that is an option.
I don't really want to wait 4 years to get a BSN from UofL, but I will if it is a better program! I know Galen is affiliated with Norton Healthcare, which looks like a great place for employment. Can anyone who has further information about nursing programs in Louisville assist me? I really appreciate it - thank you!!
Just to clarify: U of L offers the BSN (bachelor of science in nursing).
I would also recommend either one, depending on whether you want the ASN or BSN.
The options you are exploring are all good ones. Kudos to you both!
