Universal Training Institute (UTI) is a postsecondary institution established in 2006 and located in Perth Amboy, New Jersey.  It began offering Licensed Practical Nursing classes in October 2007. With the support of a dedicated, highly qualified and experienced faculty team, UTI trains its students for entry-level employment in practical nursing.


UTI’s program is centered on the development of the total student including the social, emotional, intellectual aspects of human life.  UTI’s program has been carefully developed to provide students with the knowledge and skills required to function efficiently and effectively as crucial and contributing members of a healthcare team.


UTI provides education and training to a cultural and ethnic diversity of students who, upon successful completion of their studies, will contribute to the improvement of the health and wellness of their communities.


While student success is at the core of its mission, UTI recognizes that, ultimately, students must assume responsibility for their own learning and that the role of instructors is to facilitate that learning.  To this end, it is the responsibility of both the faculty and the institution to provide an environment in which students’ critical thinking skills are stimulated and honed to maximize their learning potentials, and thrive intellectually through the exchange of ideas and interaction with other students and faculty.


It is a goal of UTI and its faculty to help students develop an unwavering commitment to the ethics of the profession and to embrace the necessity of and desire for lifelong learning.
