In 1991, a group of pharmacists founded Arizona School of Pharmacy Technology. Their goal was to train people for a growing number of jobs in the local pharmacy community.

Five years later, Eduvision, Inc., an educational services corporation with more than two decades of health education experience, purchased the school and expanded its offerings.

Along with new health education programs came a new name: Arizona College of Allied Health. They soon relocated from their original Scottsdale campus to a larger 32,953-square-foot location in Glendale, Arizona, which provided ample space for the new medical assisting and health information specialist programs.

By 2012, they had officially changed their name to Arizona College and opened a second campus in Mesa, Arizona. This expanded footprint allowed their academic offerings and student population to grow.

In 2013, with the introduction of a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program, the college was officially renamed the Arizona College of Nursing.

“Everyone at Arizona College has been very helpful and friendly. The class size is smaller than most colleges which is what I like the most.” ~Whitney Begay, Pharmacy Technician Program
