Welcome to NRI Institute of Health Sciences
Our HistoryNRI Institute of Health Sciences is a private degree granting post-secondary school located in Royal Palm Beach, Florida. NRI Institute was formed as a result of the merger of the former Ultrasound Medical Institute and the NRI Institute of Health Sciences. The school was renamed the NRI Institute of Health Sciences to reflect the expanded programs in registered and practical nurse as well as nursing assistant and home health aide while continuing the respected diagnostic medical sonography program. The current owners of the school have extensive healthcare experience in the United States and internationally that includes hospital administration, managed care, nursing education and the international recruitment of healthcare professionals.
