~Natalie Charmant, HCI College Graduate

“My experience at HCI College has been amazing. The staff is super great and welcoming. From the time I started I knew that this field would be great for me. I’ve learned so many things that I didn’t even know before. This program has motivated me to further my education in Nursing. I would love to come back and start the RN program here at HCI College. I want to give special thanks to Ms. Jenna and Ms. Susanna for continuing to motivate me when I wanted to give up and for never giving up on me when it got hard.”

~A’lajah Boyd, HCI College Graduate

“HCI College changed my life. The program itself was fast but the amazing professors made sure we were always comfortable and if we didn’t feel okay moving on. They always made time for us to get extra help. Some professors have become my close mentors that I look up to. Externship was a a dream come true for me and very hands on.

HCI prepared me for the real world and I am very excited to start my new journey that I could not have done without HCI College!”

~Cassandra Michaels, HCI College Graduate

“Overall, my experience included challenging steps that prepared me for a career in EMS. Now, I feel confident in my skills acquired from the careful tutelage and mentor ship from the whole HCI staff.

~Wilfredo Ruiz Jr., HCI College Graduate

“My experience in the classroom with Mrs. Cruz was absolutely amazing. I could not have asked for a better and more knowledgeable instructor for nurse 3 and capstone. Thanks to professor Cruz, I was able to succeed in the two hardest semesters of nursing school. Her wisdom, guidance, patience, and amazing instruction  kept me motivated and confident to take any and all exams. She was always there for us through the ups and downs and always willing to go the extra mile to ensure all the material we needed was taught and understood to the fullest. I truly appreciate all I have learned from Professor Cruz and because of her, I was able to pass the NCLEX on the first try and start my dream of being a Pediatric Registered Nurse.”

~Ashley Cruz, HCI College Graduate

“Great programs. Loved the process and the fact that I could go at my own pace. I was able to still work full time while attending classes. Love how fast and easy it was to take the classes and work towards my degree.”

~Richard Pye, HCI College Graduate

“My experience at HCI has been great. I was able to grow past my limitations and achieve more than I thought I could thanks to the support and encouragement I received here. I look forward to continuing to grow and achieve.”

I started HCI College as soon as I graduated from high school. Being here is one of the best things I have done. I learned so many things in this program that I am now able to do. I feel ready to start in the Veterinary Assisting field.”

~Katherin Samon Tome, HCI College Graduate

I would like to take this time to thank Professor Lesslie Cruz for inspiring me every day. Your patience and dedication to me have been more than that of a teacher. You have made learning enjoyable. Your wisdom and kindness have been invaluable. You’ve turned obstacles into stepping stones.”

~Sendra Casey, HCI College Graduate

“All the teachers are great. They are great with getting one-on-one help. Mrs. B was great at getting me started and Mrs. Trenice really pushed me to be my best and try to go above that. There were some times in my externship that I thought about quitting, but the whole team got behind me and finally finished. It was a great experience and I learned so much.

~Brandi Luff, HCI College Graduate

“To be truthful. I did not know what to expect coming to HCI. However, through all the trials and tribulations I stayed firm on one belief, I WILL get my license. Even through working full time with fire rescue and through the different “speed bumps” we had to overcome in classes, I stayed studied up and prayed up. Through Him all things are able and if you apply yourself, you too, will see that light at the end of the tunnel. Is HCI hard? No doubt. But because of the difficulty in educating their students, I was able to pass my NCLEX on the FIRST try at only 85 questions. Keep your eyes on what truly matters, and you’ll be alright. You ready for the ride?”

~Giovanni Prato, HCI College Graduate

My experience at HCI was great. I’ve enjoyed everyone and everything here. I’ve learned so much and I’m very thankful for this experience. I have started my career as a Medical Assistant, and I won’t stop here. I look forward to obtaining my Bachelor of Science in Nursing one day.”

~Tanesha Pierre, HCI College Graduate

10 years and HCI helped my dreams come true with achieving my goal in becoming a RN.

~Medaica Menar, HCI College Graduate

“Deciding to attend HCI for a nursing career was one of the best decisions I made. Although the program was hard, I made it.

“In 2022, I found myself with no direction in life and struggled with my mental health. I began working with a local rescue before realizing my calling was in animal care.

~Joyanna King, HCI College Graduate

“Through perseverance and dedication, I achieved my goal of working as a Registered Nurse.

~Terrell Evans, HCI College Graduate

“My experience at HCI changed me. I spent years knowing but not quite knowing my true potential and strength until then. Working full time and school full time isn’t for the weak. There have been many nights I’ve wondered if this was the right choice, if this was meant for me why isn’t it easy?

The students and staff continually encouraged me to keep looking at the finish line and not my feet. The path was bumpy but lead me to my success. For that I am thankful. I am also grateful to HCI for helping me confidently succeed.”

~Melissa Joseph, HCI College Graduate

“I became an EMT to help my community by saving as many lives as possible. As a former soldier I gravitate toward structure and helping others in need. As an HCI student in the EMT program I have learned lifelong skills from top quality instructors that will follow me for the rest of my career. I would like to thank instructor Bruce Evans for his upstanding character and positive attitude toward his students. Failure was never an option.”

~Stephen Smith, HCI College Graduate

“I decided to become a Veterinarian Assistant because the love I have for animals. I always enjoyed being around animals my whole life ever since I was a kid.

Ever since I found out about HCI’s Veterinarian program I was grateful to learn all about being an assistant, I am already working at an animal hospital, and I hope to advance to become a Technician and be in the field I truly want to be which is Wildlife Felinology, I am very proud of myself for graduating this program and very excited for the bigger and better things in my future.”

~Vanessa Angarita, HCI College Graduate

“After a great experience with my EMT program at HCI College, I enrolled in their Paramedic Program. My instructors Kyle Morejon and Jason Montag made sure I was taught the skills to begin a successful Paramedic career. I am currently working as an EMT with Wellington Regional Medical Center, and I am now eligible for promotion to Paramedic. I enjoyed the friends I made, and the confidence to work in this industry that I gained.”

~Niaja Lucas, HCI College Graduate

“I don’t think I could ever put into words how much you (Director Cruz) are appreciated. Your kindness, your advocacy, and your dedication as a professor at HCI – is absolutely remarkable. I could only hope to one day, positively impact the lives of others, the way you have impacted mine. 

I passed my boards on Saturday and I honestly don’t think that would have been possible without you. Thank you for all that you do for your students! Your encouragement and support will stick with me forever.

Ashley Vertuno, FACHE
Chief Executive Officer
HCA Florida JFK North Hospital

“I decided to be a medical assistant to reduce the many years of going to school to be a neonatologist. It would take me at least 10 years to finish without doing the medical assistant program. Now that I did the medical assistant program, it will take me six years to finish school and I have clinical hours already under my belt I am also very excited to start working in the industry. Working and going to school is even better because I no longer worry about, how I’m going to get this money for school. I’m very proud of myself for graduating and excited to be working.”

“Mrs. Evans, I would very much like to thank you for creating this connection and opportunity. This experience was far and beyond amazing and really allowed us to practice our paramedic skills of IV placement, EKG, and PT assessment. So again, thank you for your hard work in making this a reality for us and having clinicals I will continue to look forward to!”

~Fabrice Casseus, HCI College Graduate

“When I decided to pursue my career in vet assisting, I wasn’t sure
where to start. I decided to start at HCI, where I found the support I needed to be able to finish my degree. Anytime I needed anything I could rely on my peers and the staff. I have always had a love for animals and wanted to find a way to help. This is just the start to my career in the vet field. I hope in the future to be able to excel and move forward to help more animals.”

~Kiraa Roberts, HCI College Graduate

“Although the journey was challenging including the untimely death of my two sisters and the Covid pandemic emerging, HCI provided relevant professional support for me to complete my program during this time. I completed this program in the peak of the covid pandemic and was able to sit my NCLEX 3 months later and was successful on my first attempt. Since graduating from HCI I have had numerous job opportunities available to me. I was able to obtain employment at a prominent hospital. I am grateful for my experience and time with HCI.”

~Shaunette Davidson, HCI College Graduate

“I would like to say that joining the EMT program here at HCI was probably the best decision I’ve made so far. Not only was I able to earn my EMT license I was able to be part of a family that was supportive, motivating and welcoming. The family wasn’t forged by my peers but by the Instructors. They were extremely encouraging and always pointed my class in the right direction, always making us strive to do the right thing. I now work at JFK Hospital pursuing my dream in the medical field. Hooyah Class 113″

~Matthew Halleck, HCI College Graduate

“My time at HCI was an experience to remember. Nursing school was not easy. I have faced many challenges, however with the help of my instructors at HCI College I was able to overcome any obstacle I encountered. I quickly learned that to be successful I had to invest myself completely and develop strong studying habits, discipline, and drive. Staying positive and developing these habits helped me through the nursing program and helped me pass the NCLEX the first time. Within three weeks I was hired at HCA Florida Lawnwood and have been with them for three years. Hard work yields success!”

~Trudy Ann Brice, HCI College Graduate

“I ,as an individual, cannot recommend HCI College enough for the EMT program. The instructors have many years of experience and tons of jokes. Trust me, no one is funnier than Instructor Santini. You’ll make friends for life here.”

~Alexander Gutierrez, HCI College Graduate

“I want to express my sincere gratitude to the HCI Nursing College for the invaluable support and assistance they provided me in achieving my goal of becoming a registered nurse. I am grateful for the program’s commitment to excellence, comprehensive curriculum, and exceptional faculty, which helped me grow both personally and professionally.

The faculty members of the program are not only highly experienced but also committed to helping their students achieve success. They are always available to provide guidance, support, and encouragement, and their passion for teaching is truly inspiring.

Thanks to the HCI Nursing College’s exceptional training, I was able to pass my nursing licensure exam with flying colors. I am now a registered nurse, and I owe a great deal of my success to the program. I am proud to be an HCI Nursing College alumna and grateful for the support and encouragement I received from everyone in the program.”

~Sonia Brown, HCI College Graduate

“I am grateful for the education I received from HCI College. As
a working mom, their flexibility allowed me to get an education
at night, do clinicals on the weekend and continue school
despite the outbreak of COVID 19. I had amazing professors who
supported me despite having major surgery to remove a large
tumor in the middle of my program. I graduated from HCI in
December 2020 and passed my NCLEX on the first try.
I accepted
my first job weeks later at Palms West Hospitals step down unit
and I am now a full time ICU registered nurse. If you have been
thinking of changing your career, it’s never too late. Thanks
HCI.”

~Danielle Tessmer, HCI College Graduate

“My experience at HCI College was better than I expected. The staff was very helpful and welcoming whenever I needed help with something or if I was having issues. The EMT Course was very hands on and also instructor Matlock was great every step of the way and explained things thoroughly with his extensive knowledge in fire/paramedics. Thank you for the experience and thank you to Dean Denise Edwards.”

~Dudley Bonhomme, HCI College Graduate

I can proudly say I am a Registered Nurse. I am so grateful, I am so proud of myself for pushing and never giving up . To anyone that took the time to read this testimony, I just want you to know that the best is yet to come. Once you’ve completed school, taken the NCLEX and pass, the world is yours. No regrets, no worries, the only regret you’ll have it not finishing. It’s ok to have bad days, it’s ok to feel defeated, regroup and keep pushing.  If you haven’t cried, or laugh in nursing school, it wasn’t an experience.”

~Latoya Johnson, HCI College Graduate

“I personally found the EMT Program at HCI College to be very well designed not only for success in the field of Emergency Medicine but also any avenue you would want.

~Jeremy Robinson, HCI College Graduate

“With the help of HCI’s administration and staff I gained the skills, knowledge, and clinical experience that I needed to be able to pass the NCLEX on the first try. The flexibility offered to working parents was such an important aspect of the nursing program I wanted to attend and HCI provided me the opportunity to advance my career while still working full-time. I’ve recently begun a nursing position in the same hospital I was a CNA at and I’m loving every minute of it! Thank you HCI for giving me everything I needed to do what I love.”

~Kady Meeler, HCI College Graduate

“I have enlisted in the US Navy.  Although I am not pursuing a profession as an EMT, my experience [at HCI College] will lead me to a more successful future; due to the character it helped me to build.

The instructors and staff at HCI College exposed me to real professionalism in the medical field. I was taught to have confidence and developed a strong work ethic. “

~Sheronda Grace, HCI College Graduate

“I appreciate HCI College for the [Medical Assisting] training they gave me in the practical field as much as in the theoretic field. In reality, I didn’t think I would be able to complete the program because my native language is Spanish. But everything to the contrary, this program helped me learn English. Listening to the teacher, studying for exams, and doing hands-on practice helped me. I also thank my teacher Ms. Desiree Millan for the effort she made for her students to learn and be ready to put all their knowledge to practice in the health field. I want to thank HCI College because I have obtained the skills and knowledge necessary to put them into practice. I also want to thank the administrative personnel, Kim Trujillo and Celeste Blackwell, for the help they gave me and for encouraging me to keep going. “

~Michelle Whyte, HCI College Graduate

“As a career-driven person with the utmost passion for EMS, I knew that early on I could align my career commitments by becoming a Paramedic. By that,  HCI has supported these goals without barriers. The Paramedic program further induced these desires where I was able to apply myself in addition to lived experience while incorporating the full exposure that the program offers in ways unlike any before. With the support of their excellent staff, the EMS Director and my Lead Instructor Bruce Evans, I was able to embody this in full achievement.”

“I started Paramedic with the goal of not only becoming a better version of myself, but to serve as a useful component to everyday society.

~Antony Camejo, HCI College Graduate

“I have learned so much in the medical assisting program whether it was book knowledge or with hands on experience. The program is doable as long you put the time into it. You not only learn from the professor, who is very knowledgeable about the courses and profession, but you can also learn from your classmates who might have experience as well. I’m very excited to have been hired by my externship site, where I now can turn my knowledge into experience, and learn furthermore in the field.”

~Yan Chen, HCI College Graduate

“I remember when I decided to go into EMT school I was looking for the right school to attend, and I remember seeing HCI pop up in my search result plenty of times. After I did my research I didn’t want to attend any other school but HCI. When I tell you I don’t regret my decision, I don’t. I love HCI! When I needed help, it was there, when I needed resources, it was provided, and when I needed time, it was given. All the staff played a role in helping me get where I’m at now. Now I have a bigger goal that’s going to push me to continue my education in the medical field thanks to HCI.”

~David Lucas, HCI College Graduate

Joan Sherrard in Career Services was also a major key to my success, she helped me sign up for my Nationals and switch EMT license to Florida.

This was a very exciting day for me because ever since I was a little girl, I’ve always had the passion to become a nurse just like my mom. Without my mom, i wouldn’t have gotten this far, she encouraged me so much and I’m grateful for her. Another exciting day for me was the day I finished nursing school. I knew I could do it, and I am so happy I did. This journey was tough but thank God, my instructors, and my family everyday for helping me get through it.”

“My name is Shaseka Lewis (also known as O’shea) I started HCI in May/June 2019 in order to finish my studies that I started at another college. I was referred to this college by another HCI graduate and passed her NCLEX December, 2020. While enrolled at HCI she and I were each other’s eyes, ears, and
strength. Not only did I have her to lean on I had professor Levy & professor Stewart who allowed me to prove to myself that as long as I worked hard, concentrated and pushed through obstacles I would achieve all my set goals. I passed the NCLEX on my first try on December 18, 2020 and found
employment 2 days later. After corresponding with Annamarie the career advisor at HCI Fort Lauderdale campus I was able to land another job with Broward Children’s center. I am very grateful for her insight on job opportunities, reviewing my resume and all the interview tips she provided me. I would definitely recommend HCI to anyone who wishes to become a nurse.”

“Finding a nursing school that was accommodating to working parents was not easy. HCI gave me that opportunity, not saying it was easy but doable. We can do anything we set our minds to if you really want it!!”

~Jamie Russo, HCI College Graduate

“Anything worth having is worth fighting for”‐Susan Elizabeth Phillips. Having my Nursing degree was worth the fight. The faculty and staff of HCI College stood behind me every step of the way to ensure I would win. Being an adult learner and single parent, I was faced with multiple obstacles but I never gave up because of the encouraging words of Miss Lorna, Professor Allison and Professor Timmie to name a few. I would
recommend this school to anyone who is serious about pursing their dream of becoming a registered nurse as like me
you too will have an army of dedicated individuals to help you succeed.”
