Architectural Structure

 The American Nursing Institute

The American Nursing Institute (ANI), a subsidiary of GHSN, was developed to provide a comprehensive range of nursing and allied health education and training programs throughout the world.

The ANI teaching strategies engage students in developing critical thinking skills, interactive classroom learning, hands-on learning experiences in skills labs, comprehensive experience in the clinical environment, as opposed to merely memorizing facts.

Our goal is to support and provide innovative and sustainable solutions to hospitals and healthcare organizations around the world.  As such, training and capacity building of healthcare staff is of pivotal importance and an area of focus for GHSN in its services to its clients.
