About Ross Education

Do you want to change your tomorrow, today? Ross Education invites you to do so by enrolling in an interactive academic program that could get you started on a career where you could help others in a healthcare setting.

With everything from clinical experiences to guest speakers, Ross Education provides in-depth training for future nurses, dental assistants, occupational therapy assistants, veterinary technicians, pharmacy technicians, and medical insurance billers/medical office administrators. The school was established in 1969 and has a 50-year history of instruction in healthcare as well as vocational and business training. While the main focus is on allied health, you could also pursue an Associate of Applied Science in Business Management degree that is designed to help you build the management skills you could apply in and outside of a business setting.

In a Ross Education allied health program, you'll spend anywhere from 30 to 100 weeks in classroom training (depending on the program). In many cases, these programs combine hands-on training sessions with traditional lectures and studies, as well as 5-6 weeks in externships in hospitals, clinics, veterinary offices, pharmacies, or dental practices where you can work alongside and learn from professionals in their fields. If you're an aspiring nursing assistant, you can finish your studies in as little as two weeks, with less than seven hours in a clinical component. In this program, you can develop skills in hygiene care, safety, and patient and family support that might lead to work in hospitals, nursing homes, hospices, or assisted living facilities. A 48-week LPN program (with about 400 clinical hours) and a 2-year associate degree program in nursing (with a 600-hour clinical requirement) are also available.

If you want to attend a school that offers a tight-knit feeling among students and staff, flexible day and evening scheduling, and convenient locations throughout the Midwest, Northwest, and South, then Ross Education might be the academic choice for you.
