Those who are passionate about caring for others and enjoy working in a collaborative team environment can put their strengths to good use as a Practical Nurse (PN).

Prism Career Institute’s practical nursing program equips students with the necessary skills and knowledge to excel in this line of work. These students are also required to complete a clinical training experience with an approved healthcare provider.

Medical Assistant Program In NJ

  • Medical Assistant Program

    Medical assistants are essential to the healthcare field, and they require a diverse skill set. Our program helps students prepare for a career by providing both clinical and administrative education. An externship is also required, offering a chance to gain hands-on experience prior to graduation.

Medical assistants play a vital role in providing care for patients while ensuring their place of employment runs smoothly, efficiently, and successfully. Depending on the size of the employer and the work environment, medical assistants may be tasked with a wide range of responsibilities, from taking vital signs and performing electrocardiogram (EKG) tests to handling various administrative tasks.

Our medical assistant program trains students in a clinical setting so they can learn what to expect when entering the workforce. Students are required to participate in an externship prior to their completion of the program to gain resume-building experience that will benefit them on their job hunt.
