What our Graduates Say:

"My experience at Swedish was flawless from start to finish. For this, I give credit to the highly motivated and dedicated staff, from the admissions office all the way to the president. I want to especially thank Ms. Hillory Thorpe -- professor, adviser, veteran and now Dean of the Nursing program -- for believing in me."



"I love Swedish Institute and definitely recommend it. Now that I have my license the opportunities are everywhere, I promise you. I have about four jobs right now and I am turning away offers!"



"When I was thinking of changing my career, Medical Billing and Coding sounded best to me as it gives me an option to work from home in the future. I found out about Swedish Institute, and I’m so glad I did because they gave me an opportunity to learn something brand new in a short time. I’m excited for a new chapter in my life. Thank you to all my instructors at Swedish Institute."
