Brightside Institute in Plano, Texas, is equipped to prepare nurse assistants for jobs. Read more about our history and vision, and our program requirements.

Students who enroll at Brightside Institute can expect to find instructors who are experienced healthcare professionals and educators who develop meaningful relationships with students. Students can also expect to find state of the art classrooms and laboratories for clinical practice and outstanding clinical facilities with caring administrators and staff who support them in developing their clinical skills.

Many of our students are busy people who have a variety of responsibilities in addition to their educational goals. Therefore, classes are scheduled during morning, evening, and weekend hours to accommodate every student’s needs. Accelerated CNA classes are also available for those who wish to complete their program of study within a shortened period.
