Founded over 25 years ago, Galen College of Nursing is one of the largest private nursing schools in the United States. Galen College was established by Humana in 1989 with a single purpose: to offer excellence in nursing education. Humana, which at that time was positioned as one of the largest insurance providers and healthcare systems in the country, developed practical/vocational nursing programs in response to a severe national nursing shortage. Galen College became an independent educational organization upon the dissolution of the Humana hospital system.
Galen College is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges, and provides nursing education to over 1,200 students on its San Antonio campus and over 4,500 across all campus locations, supporting healthcare needs as exemplars of excellence in nursing education.
