    The way I understand it is that Galen has to have x number of students graduate and pass the NCLEX-RN before they can get full approval/accreditation. I think the first RN class started in Nov (?) so the first graduation class won't be until Jan 2010 or so.

    Their entrance test isn't bad at all. It's actually not any worse than the one I took when I entered LVN school (not a Galen LVN graduate). They have the study guide available at their main office in the medical center.

I live in Colorado now and i plan on moving back when and if i get in. I have a lot of the pre-req's done already.. If you have any info on the programs that would help alot. thanks

    I recently found out I was accepted by Galen to start their RN program in July. Can anyone tell me about their 1st quarter school schedule. I would like to continue working while attending school. I have some of the prerequistes but still require a few more, is the first quarter just prerequistes?

    How do you like the RN program so far? I know it's a new program but I heard it's a good program. Thanks to all who reply. Any information provided will be useful.

    Here's the link you need to go to specifically for Galen: http://www.galencollege.edu/sananton...rar/schedules/


    I did the 18 month program and am in my second quarter of 6 quarters. First semester, you take English, Math and Anatomy and Physiology.

    Tuesday: English 10-12, and Math from 1-3
    Wednesday: 8-5 A&P and lab
    Thursday: English 10-12, and Math from 1-3.

    Three days maximum per week with the 6 quarter program :-). I'm able to work full-time and go to school. It's really not that hard to manage it, compared to LVN school.

    Any questions, please let me know. I really do enjoy the school and the instructors are great and always willing to help whenever needed!
