April 2014 Galen LVN

  1. Hello,

    I am starting the LVN program at Galen, San Antonio in April and just wanted to get acquainted with some of my future classmates :-) I will be enrolled in the evening program so I can continue working, and so I can pay my tuition over a longer span. Ideally I would have liked to do the day program and be done in 12 months so I can go for my RN quicker, but I can't afford to stop working.

    Looking forward to meeting some potential study buddies! :-)

    I know this really doesn't have anything to do with the thread but I just got my acceptance for the SA oct 2014 session and i was just wondering how much your uniform were and where did you order them from. when I had my meeting and walk through of the campus my advisor said that they were anywhere from 100 to 250 depending on where you got them from. I just want to get ahead of the game and start buying things slowly over the summer so that i don't have to spend close to 1000 at one time.

    Lindseylu586, Congrats! You can get your scrub pants anywhere but the shirts you have to order through Galen because they're embroidered. I've never worn the lab coat, but you may want to get it just in case. 2 sets of ciel blue and 2 sets of whites will get you through...make sure you cant see your underwear through your white scrubs. Be prepared to wear basic granny underwear/bra in white (or flesh tone depending on your complexion) Now, for what I wasn't told until my first day:
    you need a stethoscope and a bp cuff (not a cuff that has the steth built in). You'll also probably need scissors and a pen light.
    Good Luck!!!!

    Do you need a double or single head stethoscope? I debating which one to buy
