“Out of all my educators, Mrs. Smith (from Smithwood Medical Institute, LLC) was the only one who surpassed the normal role of a teacher. She would always stay after class to help her students or prepare for the next school day. Mrs. Smith inspired me to go beyond my best while a student in her class. She is very passionate about her profession. I feel honored to have been one of her students.”

With all the drama and stress that comes with being a teenager, she helped me stay motivated and focus on my dream.

Her life long devotion and compassion as a teacher has motivated me to reach that dream in becoming a registered nurse.”

We offer job placement assistance to all our graduates, and it’s a process that starts even before graduation. We encourage our students to regularly attend classes, arrive on time, and do well in their studies. These habits help our students attract potential employers so that they have a better chance of landing the jobs that they want. It’s important to understand, though, that employment is not guaranteed upon graduation.

We are also proud of the network that we have built over the years within the healthcare community.
