Falcon Institute of Health and Science is a Nationally accredited Institute for higher education and is conveniently located just off Airport Road, within the beautiful Industrial Drive in Bethlehem.
Since the inception of the school in 2013, the mission of the school was to provide affordable and quality education. The pride of Falcon Institute is that the staff care about the students and strive to teach them to be caring health care providers — which is a great asset to all the people in the Lehigh Valley and beyond. Falcon Institute also takes pride in its’ highly educated staff who are dedicated, committed and caring.
To date the Institute has graduated hundreds of quality nurses who are working throughout the Lehigh Valley and in the nation, helping to fight the COVID pandemic as well as to care for patients with various needs. Falcon Institute also has graduated thousands of quality certified nurses’ aides who also have bravely endured the battle of COVID as they worked diligently to care for their patients.
To provide hands on experience to the students, Falcon Institute of Health and Science has an affiliation agreement for its’ Nurses and Nurses’ Aides Programs with multiple facilities, encompassing the majority of health care employers in the Lehigh Valley.
Falcon Institute is now proudly a Medical Assistant Program that is consistent with its’ mission to provide quality and affordable education. In addition, they have joined together with St. Luke’s Health Network to give students hands-on experience at various sites within the St. Luke’s Health Network.
Not only is Falcon Institute adding more programs, but they are now expanding their physical location to accommodate the increased number of students that are anticipated. The US Bureau of Labor Statistics has recently projected that 1.1 million additional nurses are needed to avoid a further nursing shortage in 2022; Falcon Institute is working diligently to decrease this need, while the country works to meet the challenges that have arisen due to COVID.
Because of Falcon Institute’s administration and staff’s commitment to quality education, they earned the reputation as one of the Best Career Trade Schools in the Lehigh Valley and were awarded the title of Best Career Trade School by the Lehigh Valley Reader’s Ranking, two years in a row — 2020 and 2021.
Just like the falcon is known for its intelligence, precision speed, strength, sharp eyesight and focus, Falcon Institute continually aims for these attributes as they soar higher and higher to new and broader heights as time goes on, always keeping consistent with the goals of quality and affordable education as well as victory with determination.
