School History:

Palm Beach Vocational Institute, Inc. was established in 1997 as an educational training institution to fill a growing need for quality health education. It was designed to develop "hands-on" professional health care workers. The programs are all designed to address the quality preparation of those who provide patient care in hospitals, long-term care facilities and private homes. Five years ago, under the new leadership of our current President/CEO, PBVI re-established new ownership and revamped the structure and organization of the Institute and the newly renowned Palm Beach Vocational Institute & Nursing School was born.
