Meet the Team

CNA Instructor

Premier Medical Careers has been a vision that not even I completely understood. As a nurse who started her career as a Nursing Assistant, it has been a privilege and a honor to mentor and guide others in their journey to get started in the medical field. I have come to realize that I am not only here to encourage those around me audibly, but to be a living testimony as I invest in others and the profession I love!

Hope Young, BS in Health Care Management

PRN Instructor

I have been in the Corporate America world for the past 18 years. However, as God would have it He placed me at Premier Medical Careers about 2 years ago as a student. Well God certainly works in mysterious ways, I was laid off from Sprint in November 2016 and in February 2017 I was ask to be instructor here.

Through God’s grace he placed me here for a reason. I am now only being obedient along with continuing my pursuit of becoming a Registered Nurse. Premier Medical Services feels like home and I am so blessed to have this opportunity!
