programs after several years of work with healthcare experts and faculty
to develop a highly customized, affordable and flexible curriculum,"

forward to helping not only those with associate degrees looking to take
the next step in their careers, but also students who are earning their
first nursing degree, develop into healthcare advocates and thought
Galen's program was developed to help the nursing workforce prepare for
industry trends identified by the Institute of Medicine, which projects
nurses will need to achieve a higher level of education for the rapidly
changing healthcare landscape. To ensure the field is ready for this
anticipated evolution, the Institute's target is that 80 percent of the
nursing workforce wil hold at least a bachelor's degree by 2020.
Galen's RN to BSN offers highly interactive, content-rich courses and
the unique ability to have a special area of focus. The first special
area of focus offered will be "Leadership and Management" developed in
partnership with Lee Cockerell, former executive vice president at The
Walt Disney (News - Alert) Company.
Other program features include:
Custom content, structure and format supported by video, real-time
discussion and 3D graphics
Affordable, competitive tuition for new and existing students
An assigned Student Support Liaison to provide individualized
assistance, similar to an on-campus experience
Mobile-friendly classes that allow students to access resources at
home or on-the-go
Since 1989, Galen has dedicated significant resources solely to quality
nursing education. The new RN to BSN program complements Galen College
of Nursing's current degree offerings at the Tampa Bay campus, including
ADN, LPN and LPN to ADN Bridge programs. With new program additions now
and in the future, Galen can steward its students through every step of
their career path.
The online program will first be available to residents of Kentucky,
Indiana, Florida, and Ohio, with plans to expand into Texas and other
