“I chose Wisdom Health Academy because my life was hectic and busy. I am a single mom so the flexibility of the class helped me be able to still go to work and spend time with my daughter.”

Who We Are

Wisdom Health Academy was founded by Mrs. Carolyn Thurston, she was inspired to start this academy because of the lack of training that her senior care agency employees had. She wanted to make sure that anyone that represented Wisdom was well trained and prepared to do their jobs. Mrs. Thurston wanted to make sure that anyone who wanted to be a CNA got the proper education and training. Wisdom Health Academy is a state approved nursing school located in Durham, NC. We specialize in nurse aide, and medication administration that prepares our students for a career in the health care industry. We also provide nurse aide refresher courses that allow local professionals to receive the required continuing education course work needed to retain their certification. We offer a nurse aide 1 course, which will help several students get into a nursing school because nursing schools are requiring students to get their CNA license before they can enter the school.

Our phlebotomy course will help students to be well prepared to succeed in a hospital, private lab, or any other facility of their choosing. We encourage all of our students to reach their fullest potential in the courses they choose to take.
