Galen College of Nursing

Galen College of Nursing and HCA Healthcare have joined to make quality nursing education more accessible than ever. The HCA Healthcare-Galen grant significantly reduces tuition costs for the Online RN to BSN and two Online MSN options of Nursing and Healthcare Leadership, and Nursing Education. Additionally, eligible employees* may opt into a Direct Bill Option which could limit upfront tuition costs.

*Certain colleagues are not eligible to participate in these programs. This includes colleagues covered by a collective bargaining agreement (CBA), unless their CBA permits participation. These colleagues should go to HCAhrAnswers.com and view the program that applies.

HCA Healthcare has partnered with Western Governors University to offer educational opportunities to affiliated employees. HCA Healthcare employees are eligible for a 10% tuition discount. Scholarship opportunities are also available.

HCA Healthcare Hope Fund

As HCA Healthcare employees, it is our top priority to take excellent care of our patients. But we also take care of each other. In 2004 this was more evident than ever as hundreds of our colleagues were affected by the Florida hurricanes. Immediately following the storms, HCA Healthcare employees throughout the United States wanted to know how they could help. Contributions came in and were disbursed out to HCA Healthcare families that had been impacted. To these families, the contributions from their fellow employees represented much more than financial relief. They represented hope that life might soon return to normal. What started as an informal way to help one another soon evolved into a nonprofit organization, the HCA Healthcare Hope Fund, was officially formalized in July 2005.
