Our History in Healthcare Education

We’ve been training healthcare professionals in Arizona and beyond for nearly 30 years. 

In 1991, a group of pharmacists founded Arizona School of Pharmacy Technology. Their goal was to train people for a growing number of jobs in the local pharmacy community. 

Five years later, Eduvision, Inc., an educational services corporation with more than two decades of health education experience, purchased the school and expanded its offerings. 

Along with new health education programs came a new name: Arizona College of Allied Health. We soon relocated from our original Scottsdale campus to a larger facility, which gave us ample space for our new medical assisting and health information specialist programs. 

By 2012, we officially changed our name to Arizona College, moved to a 32,953-square-foot location in Glendale, and opened a second campus in Mesa. This expanded footprint allowed our academic offerings and student population to grow. 

In 2013, we introduced our bachelor of science in nursing (BSN), taking our educational offerings to a new level.

True to our roots, we’re still preparing professionals for in-demand healthcare careers. Today, Arizona College of Nursing has locations in Arizona, Nevada, Texas, Florida, and Utah.
