  • “I am so proud of myself. I was one out of three that passed my skills test on my first try and it’s all because of my teachers at The Healthcare Institute.

    I feel that the way I was taught is really going to make a difference in the world.”

  • “Mr. Bill Moyer was my instructor, and I learned a lot from him.  I discovered the correct way to do things.  The clinical information is important, but you also learn to put the patient first.  Mr. Moyer was very kind, but also demanded that we do things the right way.  It was difficult, but the reward was a CNA certification and a position with St. Luke’s Baptist Hospital a month after graduation. Not everyone graduates, but those that do leave with a marketable skill. Because of Mr. Moyer and the staff, my life was changed.  It has been truly a blessing to be a part of their success.”
