Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes a huge number of students. This index doesn’t take into account students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another. So graduation rate alone can create a misleading perception. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture.

Attending Galen has been the best experience. Everyone starting from Admissions has been extremely supportive and still supportive. Instructors/Professors are willing to go the extra mile just to help you succeed. It is worth every penny! Some of these negative reviews are ridiculous.

The hell with this school. They make the classes so freakin difficult so students can retake these expensive ass classes over and over again. They do not teach you all that's needed for each exams. They like to go through answers for the exams given in the prior day and kept apologizing that they were suppose to teach that before the past exam but because the school had a day off that day 95 percent of the failed almost all exams. Scoring 50 or below. I hate this school so freakin much I had no idea why I went there in the first place. Waste of my thousands of dollars. $355 dollars per credit hour and you need 108 credit hours to complete associate degree. Other schools only require 72 credit hours for asscosiate. I should have done my research before I enrolled but now I know.

The college is accredited. Credit will transfer. It is not yet SACs accredited (Jan 27, 2013) which limit you. If you are looking for a solid nursing education, excellence and beyond staff who go above and beyond, than this is it. They promise only what they can fulfill. I am a graduate. I am proud to say I graduated from here. I passed my nursing boards the first time! I am nurse just like any other truly respectable nurse from any other very difficult and challenging nursing program. It is not easy. There are GPA requirements, and attendance requirements before admission into the program. It is similar to any other nursing program prerequisites. Do not be miss informed. This school is excellent and like anything you get out what you put in.
