A Pause for Pet Partners

“I think it’s an amazing school. When I sat down for boards, I felt more than adequately prepared. If you put the work in, your success is almost guaranteed.”

Kontessa Brown
Dental Assisting Graduate

“Without the support of certain instructors … I would not have pushed myself to grasp the concepts and pass my boards on the first attempt. Once I passed my boards, it was less than one month after that I landed my first Respiratory Therapist job where I am currently working with so much joy every day.”

Marcus Streator
Respiratory Therapy graduate


Omgosh. So. CUTE.

Pardon us as we get the "warm and fuzzies" for this pause to celebrate some of our favorite community partners - our four-legged therapy animal friends!

Our friends at Therapy Animals of San Antonio and Mo-Kan Pet Partners in
Kansas City (a division of Pet Partners) routinely stop by our campuses to introduce our students to the role therapy animals play in patient care.

We're especially excited that our Kansas City campus was the site where Mo-Kan's Sheyenne (see photo above) celebrated her 100th visit to a community site for education on the service these animals provide.

According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, animal-assisted intervention is designed to "promote improvement in human physical, social, emotional or cognitive function. Animal-assisted activities provide opportunities for motivation, education or recreation to enhance patient quality of life."

These guys definitely enhance our lives! We look forward to all future visits from our furry friends!
