"I'm proud to say our program offers a real college-style learning experience; it may last only four weeks, but students have the potential to create a career based on knowledge learned in the program."

Get to know Terry...

  • Please share a memorable moment/success story you’ve experienced at IntelliTec. I can remember the 1st day I walked into Intellitec College, I was so excited to start a new adventure. Watching all the equipment coming in and putting everything in the new lab, having the state board come and approve the program. Yes it has all been memorable.
  • How have you resolved challenging times in your life? I take one tiny step at a time. I believe we all have experienced difficult challenges in our lives, but if you commit to yourself and your goals you will get through the tough times.
  • What advice would you give a struggling student? Remind them it’s only a four week course and encourage them to stick with it – it’ll open doors to other positions in the medical field. Also, to remind them that someday they’ll be taking care of their mothers and grandmothers…and they’ll want to get it right!
  • What life or career advice would you offer to students about to graduate? Never let anyone call you just a C.N.A. You are the backbone of all the nurses.
