The Institute and Saint Paul College are working together to improve educational attainment for New Americans who wish to advance their healthcare careers. To achieve this goal, Institute support instructors offer supplementary classes for college students taking ENGL 1711 – Composition 1, BIOL 1730 – Human Body Systems, and TEAS Preparation.
ENGL 1711 – Composition 1
This support program provides students with extra face-to-face time as they write and re-write the academic essays and research papers assigned by their primary instructors. The support instructor works with students in small groups and one-to-one to recognize and correct problems in content, organization, language, and citations and to become self-editors. Support classes are open to students in designated ENGL 1711 sections. ENGL 1711 is required for many healthcare programs.

BIOL 1730 – Human Body Systems
This support program provides students with extra face-to-face time as they tackle the key concepts of human body systems, including cell and tissue structure, and the anatomy and physiology of major organ systems. The support instructor works with students in small groups to review and clarify material covered by their primary instructors and textbook. Support classes are open to all BIOL 1730 students. BIOL 1730 is required for Practical Nursing, Medical Laboratory Technician, Respiratory Therapist, and Pharmacy Technician programs.

The TEAS Preparation program helps prospective nursing students to prepare for the Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS). This exam is required for all applicants to the nursing program at Saint Paul College – and to nursing programs many other community colleges, as well. The TEAS score is a very important criterion for acceptance. This class reviews all topic areas: mathematics, science, reading, and English language.
