Thankful For Our Students in 2022

Thankful For Our Students In 2022
As the end of the year draws closer and 2023 approaches quickly, United Career Institute would like to take a moment to appreciate the achievements of our students! We are proud to have the opportunity to help each of our students achieve their personal and professional goals. Our team is dedicated to the success of our students, knowing that our graduates will make a difference in their communities and become well-rounded healthcare professionals.

Because November is a month of thankfulness and gratitude, we would like to share some milestone moments that our students have accomplished throughout the year.

Class of 2022 Graduation

On July 8, 2022, United Career Institute conducted its annual graduation ceremony. We were thankful to have thirteen practical nursing, three medical assisting, and one phlebotomy student celebrate the conclusion of their education journey.

As part of the ceremony, practical nursing graduates were joined on stage by their loved ones for the traditional pinning ceremony. This tradition allows students to share their gratitude for the support they received from them while attending school.

To the United Career Institute Class of 2022, we are so proud of your accomplishments! While this chapter of your life may be complete, you will have endless opportunities to flourish in your career.

Hired United Career Institute Alumni

Our Programs

Suppose you are looking for a healthcare program in the Irwin, Uniontown, Pittsburgh, or Connellsville area. In that case, United Career Institute is here to help you receive the training you need to start a successful career in healthcare. Our accelerated programs are designed to develop the skills, fundamental knowledge, and hands-on experience that local employers need. Attending one of our accelerated programs will prepare you to enter the workforce in two years or less. 

United Career Institute offers residential and online training options, so students can choose which program works best for their lifestyle. 


Our residential programs are a great option for students who prefer to learn in a classroom environment. Students will learn fundamental knowledge for their program at our UCI campus in Irwin, Pennsylvania. Then they can apply the skills learned in classroom lab scenarios and gain hands-on experience through an externship toward the end of their program. 

Courses offered residentially include our Practical Nursing Diploma, Medical Assisting Degree, and Medical Billing/Administration Degree programs. 


Our online programs are ideal for students who want to complete their education while working around job schedules, family, or from the comfort of their homes. For example, students in our online Medical Assisting Degree program will learn fundamental knowledge during online classes, attend three weekend clinical days at the UCI Irwin campus throughout their program, and then be able to apply their skills in an externship at a local healthcare facility.

Students in our Online Medical Billing/Administration Degree program will learn medical billing and administration during online classes while completing practice exercises online throughout the program. Toward the end of the program, UCI’s career management team will assist students in finding an externship to apply their skills in a hands-on environment.
