Your Potential, Our Guidance, Your Future! American Health Institute’s doors are open to all students who desire to learn, regardless of age, race, creed, or past educational experience.
Our facility consists of over 7,000 square feet of classrooms, library, study rooms, and a clinical room; all for the student’s benefit. Nursing and Health Care students hone their skills through a variety of medical industry equipment used in hospitals and nursing homes country-wide.
During a students education at our Institute, they are encouraged to develop their knowledge of medical competencies through the use of innovative web-based tools available in the multimedia library. Within, students will find a wide range of reference textbooks, computer access for online research, and extensive learning tools consisting of audio, video, and CD-DVD’s resources.
Our students are encouraged to take full advantage of the learning tools in the multi-media library by attending the ‘after class hours’ to practice and refine their skills.
