About Us

Aceso Institute of Health Professions was created to meet the needs of nurses and student nurses in our community. We offer classes approved by the American Heart Association for cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and basic life support (BLS) for healthcare providers, NCLEX-RN and NCLEX-PN review, tutoring for nursing content, and classes for dosage calculations.

Why Choose Us

Aceso Institute of Health Professions was founded by nurses for nurses. We understand how demanding nursing can be; we’ve experienced it as students (from LPN to DNP) and as instructors (from classroom to clinical). These real-world experiences helped us shape our curriculum to serve the needs of working adults. We also know that nursing requires teamwork and everyone can use a little help sometimes!
