HealthStaff Training Institute (HSTi) began in September 1986 when the education and training division of Pharmacy Enterprises, Inc. formed an education division. When the anticipated expansion of HSTi exceeded the scope of Pharmacy Enterprises, the institute became a privately owned entity, carrying on the name of HealthStaff Training Institute. Since 1986, we have grown to offer a broad range of courses and a well-respected faculty. Our institute continues to evolve to accommodate the needs of the healthcare marketplace and the interest of our students. Every day we carry forward the mission to train and educate motivated and focused individuals into becoming efficient, capable allied health care or business professionals.

Very excited. I will let God decide where this leads me. I am hoping to become financially Independent and make a difference in the lives of addicts/alcoholics
I can’t believe a career opportunity was just thrown in my lap like this. Can’t help but take advantage.
I’m extremely excited as I had tried to get this vocation all training years ago and missed out as funding ran out before my turn came up. I feel fulfilled when I have a stable job especially if it can have a positive effect on someone’s day.
