    Hi lasdrs07! We went to the Indiana location in Jeffersonville. There are 3 locations in Louisville also. The Galen logos were already embroidered on them, so were were able to bring them home with us. Let me know if you don't have the sheet with the store addresses and I will get my sheet and list the locations on here for you.
    From what I've heard, you should also get your white scrub pants for clinicals there too, instead of on-line. The uniform that we get from Nanco online is optional for the pants. I think that their pants run around $20 and Cardinal uniforms sells them for $10. The main thing is that we get the white clinical shirt from Nanco online.

    Nanco does have very reasonable stethoscope prices though.

    Thank you so much slmcdo05!! I live in Indiana, so going to the Jeffersonville location would probably be way easier for me. I didn't realize there was one in Jeffersonville. Did the sheet with the addresses come in our packet? If it did, then I'm sure I have it. If I don't then I'll ask you for the address! I found a stethoscope online for only $13. It's pink!! Haha! Thanks again!!

    Hi again Ladsdrs07! I will send you a message on facebook. Just check your inbox when you get a chance. I am not 100% sure, but I think that you have to have the paper with you to get the Galen discount. We took ours with us and the lady gave us the price listed on the sheet plus another %20 off.

    Hi everyone! We just received out Nanco shirts in the mail. They are even stiffer than the blue scrubs that we got from Cardinal Uniform. We purchased our stethoscopes from them for $16 and they seem to be pretty nice!

    They're so stiff, they can stand on their own! I wonder what's with the extra piece of fabric I found in the pockets.

    Hey slmcdo05! I haven't ordered my NanCo top yet. I went on the website and saw that the price is $34. Does that include the white scrub pants or is the top by itself $34? Just wondering. Thank you!

    Lasdrs07: unfortunately, it's just the top.

    Thank you krltdy! I figured it might just be the top, but wanted to make sure.

    You are right Krltdy, the shirts can stand on their own! I really hope that a few washes and some fabric softener will help. I don't get the extra piece of fabric in the pocket either! You should see the men's shirt from Nanco; it is like a labcoat with a zipper down the front. My husband's almost goes to his knees!

    Lori,

    I tried to respond to the message that you sent me yesterday, but apparently I was not able to reply directly from the message; the mail came back as undelivered. Yeah like krltdy said, the shirt is $34! We don't have to have a labcoat, that is for the RN program. I am going to go back to Cardinal Uniform and get my white pants to go with my clinical shirt. Nanco is too expensive. I thought that the Nanco shirt was going to be made out of nicer material, since it costs so much, but it is worse than the Cardinal Uniform scrubs. Also, as far as we have been told so far, we do not need a blood pressure cuff.

    Have a good weekend everyone!

    Does anyone who is attending Galen know if you are not going to get credits transferred if you have to have the transcripts from your previous college or not I am not sure if I will be able to get mine from my old school since I'm paying back a loan so i was just wondering if I would be able to go or not i did get a unoffical copy though

    If you only have unofficial transcripts, I do not think they will give you credit. I am attending Galen and I have a bachelor's degree in an unrelated field, and they have no problem accepting my credits because i sent them official sealed transcripts from my old university. Maybe if you explain your situation, they will make an exception- i'm not sure though. Good luck!

    I don't want none of the credits transferred they done told me that they would not accept them because they don't accept Spencerian so i just didn't know if I would need to have a offical transcript
