Galen Announces Launch of 3-Year Bachelor of Science in Nursing

San Antonio, TX, January 12, 2017 --( Galen College of Nursing announced today the launch of a 3-Year Bachelor of Science in Nursing Degree. Offering solely nursing education, Galen is focused on supporting the nursing profession and the communities it serves at its four ground campuses in San Antonio, Louisville, Cincinnati, and Tampa as well as an online campus. The program launches in San Antonio, with the goal of rolling out to other campuses throughout 2017 and into early 2018.

This program adds to an exceptional educational offering with multiple pathways to nursing.

“We are always developing ways to meet the needs of students and ultimately, healthcare as a whole,” said Dr. Joan Frey, Academic President.

The US is in the midst of a national nursing shortage, with an increasing healthcare demand due to an aging population and the Affordable Healthcare Act. Nurses are in high demand.

“Our mission is about expanding opportunity in nursing, and by offering more options to become an RN, we support workforce development and a diverse population of students with multiple lifestyle and learning needs,” Frey adds.

Galen’s new program also supports an industry with rising demand for the BSN.

“We created an innovative and quality program that will allow students to get into the healthcare workplace with a BSN in a shortened timeframe,” said Dean Tara Dailey, MSN.

“This new 3-year BSN enhances our pre-licensure nursing pathways so we can educate more students for entry into professional nursing practice and help meet the needs of our partners in healthcare.”
