Company Profile

Galen College of Nursing, formerly Galen Health Institutes, was established in Louisville, Kentucky in 1990. The college originally offered a one-year licensed practical nursing program (LPN) in three cities, including Louisville, San Antonio, Texas, and St. Petersburg, Florida. Since its establishment, the college has grown to span 9 in-person campuses across five states, online programming, and now offers Associate, Bachelor, and Master degree programs in addition to its LPN program.

Galen College of Nursing has been a client of Bluewave for more than 12 years, and the business relationship continues to strengthen as the college adds new campuses and offices. With more than 10 office and campus locations, it’s safe to say that Galen trusts Bluewave when it comes to their IT services.


The college was still utilizing a legacy MPLS network when they came to Bluewave, seeking a more reliable and cost-effective solution for their campuses.


After conducting a telecommunications service and financial audit, Bluewave proposed an all-campus migration to an SD-WAN solution that would allow the college to utilize failover and maximize uptime. In tandem with the SD-WAN solution, each campus now boasts a redundant fiber connection and cable modem that connect to the onsite SD-WAN appliance. Additionally, the college locations were migrated from a PRI phone system to a centralized SIP trunking solution a few years ago.


This solution has allowed the college to reduce costs associated with the phone system and minimize maintenance time.
