Lori Delaine Parker, Houston

I had been out of the nursing field for quite a few years and my confidence to return was very low. PHES's RN refresher course was exactly what I needed to hone my RN skills and my confidence. The course covers so much information such as assessments, patient visits, BON rules and regulations, and pharmacology-administration/calculations. The HealthSouth virtual hospital/clinic visits were exactly what I needed to boost my confidence to return to nursing. The instructors were so professional, and so encouraging, absolutely awesome! I recommend this course to anyone who needs a little refresher and/or confidence to be an excellent nurse.

Miriam Simmons, Ft Worth TEXAS

The entire PHES team, and particularly Yvette Cheeks, was highly professional from start to finish. I took their RN refresher course. I was surprised by how thorough I felt the online clinicals were… But they were truly a good refresher on clinical assessment and pharmacology. I diverted from the clinical setting to be an educator (hence the need for a refresher course) and, as an educator, I found the course thorough and well taught. I highly recommend this course.

Leinani, Texas

Every encounter with PHES was always kind, patient, helpful, and resourceful. The entire process went smoothly and quickly. I loved how experienced Yvette Cheeks is, how passionate she is about training up competent nurses, and how she incorporates humor and storytelling into the lessons. She is very encouraging and caring. She makes time for each student. I finished the Refresher Course feeling more knowledgeable, equipped, and confident as a nurse. The Shadow Health module learning was fantastic. Mark off time on your calendar to dedicate your time and brain to the course, as you get out of it what you put into it. All of these things helped to boost my confidence and encourage me to return to nursing after 18 years of staying at home to care for my family. Additionally, after completing the Refresher Course, Yvette helped me to connect with the Texas Board of Nursing regarding processing my endorsement application when I encountered a delay in getting my fingerprinting done (which was the last step for me in my application).

Priyanka Singh, Lubbock, TX

I really want to express my happiness when I found out PHES refresher course. As an International educated nurse and have no work experience in USA, It had become next to impossible to renew my license. However, I found PHES and everything went so smooth . The staff is very helpful and informative. The course designed very well and they accommodate according to your availability. Their flexible approach helped me to come over from Canada to finish the course and clinical and guess what, today I am working as a RN in Cardiac step down unit. I would highly encouraged everyone, especially, International nurses who has passed NCLEX while ago but unable to work and come to USA for any reason. Thank you very much Yvette and Cynthia.

Nian, Texas

I am so glad I found PHES online ! I moved from a different State to Texas, so I needed an endorsement refresher program and PHES HAS IT ALL for your success. Cynthia is very responsive, professional, flexible, and helpful. Professor Cheeks is very knowledgebale, resourceful, patient, helpful, and dedicated instructor. You won't find any other place like PHES with such awsome refesher-programs that tailor to each individual nurse's needs and wonderful people ! Thank you very much Miss Cheeks & Cynthia !

Janet, Fort Worth, Texas

Found PHES thru a colleague. Best career decision I have made. Cynthia and Yvette are responsive, highly competent, flexible, professional, timely and resourceful. Yvette has a plethora of resources and knowledge in/on all aspects of nursing. She is thorough and in-depth in her education. She treated my colleagues with respect, kindness and based on a collegial relationships. I graduated from the school with a toolbox FULL of resources to be VERY successful in my next endeavor. So much so, I am wondering if I have set my career goals to low. I feel like I can set the world on fire with a high performing RN who will exceed any employers expectations. I cannot recommend this program enough. Best wishes for a great success if you choose this school. Like ANY education -it is 100% about 'you get out of it what you put into it.' If you don't succeed in this program you need to look in the mirror because it isn't the program or the professor. I have been a nurse executive for 30 years in the DFW area. I have seen it all. I feel highly qualified to be evaluating this program. You have heavily rely on my recommendation.

Letitia Jones, Conroe,Texas

Thank you Mrs. Cheeks for a wonderful refresher experience. I enjoyed the class and the clinical experience. God bless you and your team for all that you do for the students. Thank you Mrs. Cynthia for your patients and being so informative. You all are the best.

Sharketra Hildreth, Houston, Tx

I had an amazing experience taking the Nursing Refresher Course! I had been out of practice for 5 years and was kind of nervous about taking the course because I haven't used my skills in a long time. Mrs. Cheeks and her staff is simply awesome in their approach to each individual nursing student. No matter how long you've been out of practice this school will definitely get you ready for the workforce. Thank you so much for helping me restart my career!

Patricia A., Arlington, TX.

Excellent Service. Stand-by Assist at all time. Yvette, Talented & Dedicated Instructor. Thank You so very much Yvette & Cynthia.

Virginia Broadway,

Thank you so much!! I'm so very grateful for you all.

Jan Smith, Keller, Tx, Keller, Texas

This is an excellent Nurse Refresher course! The staff are great! Yvette is an amazing Nursing instructor and makes the classes very interesting! She was so kind, encouraging and supportive when I had emailed her about one of my challenging days in clinicals. Cynthia, the Coordinator, is wonderful! She is so pleasant and helpful in answering all your questions about the course and any other questions throughout the process! The online program is very good in teaching you about physical assessments and medications! I really learned a lot from the course and am so thankful I chose this one when researching different ones.

Stacy Butler, Houston

Yvette and her team are WONDERFUL! I had been out of nursing for 25 years taking care of my 5 children. I do not think I could have accomplished my goal of reinstating by RN license without the flexibility encouragement and kindness of the staff at PHES. Thank you Cynthia so much for allowing me to join the Houston Sept 2019 class right on the spot. Yvette thank you so so much for calling me the beginning of January to encourage me to just START the modules. Cynthia thank you for the mobile immunization clinic experience! PHES thank you for nurturing my spirit. My experience with these ladies was much more than getting a license.

Tammy Ruiz, Katy, Tx

If you are looking for a refresher course to take this is it!!! I have not worked in 19 years. I took time off to stay home with my 2 girls. I kept my Louisiana License active, but never got licensed in Texas after we moved here in 2005. My youngest daughter is graduating high school this year so I felt it was time to try to finally get my Texas RN license. I came across PHES, and it was truly a blessing. I was so scared and nervous because I've been out of nursing for so long. Yvette, Cynthia and the entire staff are absolutely AMAZING! Yvette is so caring, supportive, and wants to see you succeed. She made me feel at ease from the first time I spoke to her on the phone. Its a very relaxed classroom environment. Although I'm not working now, because I'm enjoying these last few months of my daughters senior year. I plan on starting to look for a part time job soon. . I'm just so thankful for this program that helped me get licensed and feel comfortable returning to work after all these years. Thank ya'll for EVERYTHING!!

Jennifer S, Fort Worth, TX

I was in your July Dallas refresher class. I just wanted to reach out and thank you again! I got a job and am starting orientation at Vitas! I was so nervous going into this program and feel like me finding this program was a God thing. Thank you for what you do!

Jill, Houston, TX

What a great experience! Yvette and her team made getting back into my nursing career smooth and easy. All questions answered quickly. It was always easy to get ahold of someone in office either by phone, text or email. I felt they truly understood my situation and tailored the refresher course to my needs. I would highly recommend PHES!

Casey, Houston, TX

Every single day I am happy to have found a job in the medical center that I am happy to go to. Thank you for placing me at Kindred for my clinical rotation. I love my boss , she is amazing and such a good teacher. I am enjoying my nursing 2.0 career and you should count me as one of your big success stories. Tthe truth is, you have n a big impact for many nurses in your city!! Good for you! Best regards,

Shelley, New Boston, Texas

Yvette and Cynthia go above and beyond to help make the smoothest transition possible back into nursing. The resources, education, and behind the scenes work they do to ensure you have all you need to succeed is incredible. Trouble finding a job? They will help. Need extra time? They will give it. Have questions? They find answers. This course was well worth the time and money. Thank y'all for all you have done for me!

Althia W, Plano, Texas

Professional Healthcare Educational Services (PHES) online is a great school for completing the nurse refresher course. All of the staff are very kind, caring and helpful. And instructor, Yvette Cheeks is very supportive, resourceful, qualified and dedicated to helping her students succeed. The online coursework is very educational. The online support team is available to answer questions and will assist you to navigate through your online course work. Our didactic class was fun, informative, thorough, and hands-on. Questions were welcomed and none was left behind. PHES provides flexible hours to complete your required clinical hours in a broad variety of clinical settings. After successfully completing my online coursework, didactic class, Jursiprudence Exam and Nursing clinicals, I was well prepared to restart my nursing career. I would highly recommend this school to anyone!!!

Karen O, Dallas, TX

The PHES program truly helped me feel more confident to return to the nursing field after being absent for 10 years. Yvette and Cynthia made the refresher course informative and provided up- to-date curriculum, while still maintaining a sense of humor. The course was easy to understand, albeit challenging, but Yvette and Cynthia answered all of my questions with courtesy and respect. They provided the facility in which to my clinicals - that is a HUGE blessing - I cannot not think of anything more stressful than having to find a preceptor and a facility in which to do this; especially at a time when one's confidence is wavering due to be away for so long. They made it so simple. I highly recommend PHES - AWESOME!!!!

Amy Houser, Houston, TX

This experience has exceeded my expectations at every level! The professionalism displayed by Yvette and Cynthia is second to none! They have been a pleasure to work with in making the transition back into nursing comfortable.

Elizabeth Culp, Galveston,Texas 77551

Due to a back injury in 2008 I was unable to work in direct patient care and thought I would never be able to return to my mission in life as a home health nurse. I attended the course in 2014. Yvette & Cynthia assessed my needs and accommodated my needs with in the requirements of the course so that I have been able to continue to work in home health in the administrative realm for 6 years. In addition, they have been available through the years to answer several questions for me by phone and e-mail. They virtually gave me back my life. Oh, and by the way, I was 66 when I attended the course and use a walker with ambulation. Many thanks to Yvette & Cynthia for providing an excellent program to prepare nurses who are wanting to return to the nursing role after extended leaves. Hats off to you ladies.

Ellen Bovey, Spring, TX

Thank you Yvette and staff. You completely prepared me to re-enter the nursing profession after being a stay at home mom for 17 years!!! I have been back at work as a floor nurse for over two years now. It took your services, hard work and determination, but I am a med surg nurse again. I am forever grateful. I am helping to pay for my kids college. I am enjoying floor nursing more the second time around. There is never a dull moment. It is challenging and rewarding.

Jami, Dallas, Texas

Amazing. The single most nurse centered courses you can take. You can see and feel their passion! They extend a helping hand and listening ears. They take the time to not only ensure you know what you need to know but also that you are ok, not only as a nurse but as a human being. Thank you for being so nice to me, that simple gesture means more than anything!

Leslie, Clear Lake, TX

I was in attendance yesterday during the course. It was awesome! It is clear you are passionate about your career and thank you for being an inspiration! I particularly enjoyed the reference to the bible, prayer and families which made everything relatable. I am a Patient Safety Manager at Clear Lake and so much of the content was relevant to what's happening in our practice today! Keep up the great work, Gods factor and blessings be upon you and your family! Merry Christmas!

Stella E, Dallas, TX

Thank you so much, for the refresher course. Please add a LVN to RN education/school, if yes i will be interested because you are a kind, merciful and generous person, my encounter with you during my training with you in Dallas was divine.

Albert Steward, Dallas, TX

I took your nursing refresher course in Dallas. I recently moved from Albuquerque, NM where I am working in neuroscience ICU nursing. Since then I have obtained my CCRN, CNRN, TCRN designations. I am employed as RN CVICU. It is my wish to work for 3-5 years before I retire from nursing the second time. Loving each day and thankful to PHES for helping me get back in the door.

Rhonda , Cyfair, TX

Your program and support really helped me get back into nursing and I think would benefit anyone you think might be interested. There are several openings within the outpatient setting I am now working in for anyone interested

Alisa U., Texas

You are one amazing teacher that makes a lasting impression. You and the staff I met there are simply wonderful and yall make everyone feel welcome and that each person matters.....

Benita, Katy, Tx

I would like to encourage anyone that may be hesitating because of uncertainty, call PHES ONLINE. Mrs. Cheeks and her staff are professionals in every sense of the word. I hesitated and I wish I had not, it only kept me from getting my license back later than sooner. With the guidance, training and encouragement from Mrs. Cheeks, Cynthia, Mrs. Hicks and others at PHES, I have my license after over 10yrs of inactivity in nursing. Thank you for your patience and help.

Sharon Mims, Houston, Texas

I just want to take the time and thank Yvette & Cynthia, I was able to successfully return to nursing. I had lost my confidence in my skills as a nurse, From day one they helped me to regain all that I felt I lost. If you are reading this and wondering if you should take this course, the answer is YES! This is one of the best investments and decisions you can ever make. You owe it to yourself! My license is reinstated, my confidence is restored and I am a better nurse because of this program. Thanks again PHES!!!

Misty Moore, Katy Tx

I am so thankful I found the PHES program for my RN Refresher! Yvette & Cynthia were amazing and truly want to see their students succeed! Any questions or concerns I had throughout the program were answered quickly and they always went out of their way to ensure my success. I was required by the Texas BON to complete an RN refresher program to reinstate my license, so whatever your reason is for needing the programs assistance, you will be welcomed with positivity and support. Thank you!

Judy Hyland, Cypress, TX

I am so grateful to this entire team. I want to share that I finished my doctoral dissertation and have graduated TWU with my PhD and I am now on faculty at Houston Baptist University. It is never to late to start and you can accomplish anything with perseverance and grit. THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO!

Pamela Harless, Mineral Wells, Texas

I have been out of nursing for over six years. I am currently in TPAPN. Yvette, Cynthia and the whole team have been a blessing from the start. I had so much fear to re-enter nursing before I began the refresher course. She makes it fun, realistic, challenging and reassuring. The program allows you to start from the beginning it feels (if that's where you are) if you need but becomes advanced as you advance. You never feel alone with awesome support from the online ed. to the great, caring and personal support the team provides. I'm looking forward to my clinicals. Have a very blessed Christmas and God Bless! Sincerely, a much calmer and so thankful, Pam.

Debra S, Kerrville Texas

I was out of nursing for 15 years. Yvette's classes reminded me of the critical basics I needed to recall. She also made the process as smooth and easy as I could have expected from a refresher course. I have been successfully back in Nursing for close to six years now. If I had to repeat the process I would definitely return to PHES ! Thank you Yvette


Yvette is a very knowledgeable professional and has a lot of personality. The classes are very informative and interesting. Her 5-hour Nursing Jurisprudence and Ethics course should be a must for all new nurses BEFORE going into practice.

Sharyon Gathe, Bellaire,Texas

I was out of Nursing for some time, and some one recommended their program . Ms Evette and her staff was wonderful and have continued their Educational Programs. Their the best and I truly agree !! Happy Holidays and Continue Success !!

April, Houston

My experience with PHES was incredible. Ms. Cheeks, with her guidance and education, helped shape the nurse I am today. I now have the opportunity to work as a legal nurse consultant helping to defend our nurses. Thank you Ms. Cheeks.

Jeanine, Kingwood

Very good program.I learned a lot and I was great full to be placed in a hospital that I did my clinical at. Thanks A whole lot.

Mohammad farraj, Stafford

I am very grateful that I came across PHES. the staff is very professional and personable.. They also helped me get a job and revamp my resume.

Emma, Houston

I had worked a long 12 hour shift. I came to a class taught by Mrs. Yvette. It was so awesome and so interesting I was able to stay awake, and also gain a lot of knowledge. Best school EVER!

Wanda Brazzel- Allen, League City, Tx

Such a wonderful program for nurses that need assistance to get back in the workforce when needed. I am now retired but I will never forget you and your assistance. Happy Holidays to you and your staff!

Raquel Cunningham, Cypress, TX

Can't say enough good here!!! After many years away from nursing while I raised my babies, it was time to don the scrubs again and get back to work. These classes were interesting (did not drag on like we know they can!). The PHES team was warm and welcoming and though I was not exactly lacking confidence in my abilities, they did help me feel like I was ready to roll again. I started back to work within weeks of finishing up the refresher program and 3.5 years later, I'm still comfortably employed at the same location. I've recommended PHES to others who have decided to re-enter the field as well. If I had to do it all again, I would absolutely be back in Yvette's class.

Rita, Katy, TX

Look no further. This is the best program out there! I went through the PHES refresher course over 4 years ago after being out of nursing 15 years to raise our children. All of the classes were excellent and it all came flooding back to me. It did take me a couple of months to find just the right job for me but I did and it was a blessing. Thank you Yvette for helping me all along the way. I kept putting off re-entering for months. Don't be like me, just do it already. You won't regret it. The nursing field needs more wonderful nurses just like you! Best of luck!

Elaine M., Sk, Canada

Well, there is always a room for continuing my nursing career when started to update my skills and to learn more. There are very supportive and professional and also keeping you updated for all the infos needed. I recommend this school especially for those who wants to get back in nursing like me after 8 years. now, im ready to face another chapter in our lives with my family for better future.

Dora, Houston, TX

The staff at PHES are passionate about their students' success. After 10 years away from the bedside, I wasn't sure I would be able to return nursing, but Yvette and Cynthia worked tireless to help me make it happen. Now I'm back working in the ICU, almost like I never left!

Jill Mendez, Katy, Tx

You know, I have been a school nurse for 7 years now. I have gone to all of the Belle Blackwell conferences, Cooks children’s conferences, an NASN conference, and ones offered at UofH Sugar Land. You are the only speaker’s name I know. You are an amazing speaker. You are so funny while being extremely informative. You could go on the comedy circuit!

Rhonda, Clear Lake

I am SOOOO enjoying all of your teaching! The length, breadth, height, and depth of your vast knowledge base amazes me! You are definitely a well-informed PROFESSIONAL! I feel like I’m basking and marinating in a very powerful, enabling and equipping preparation process that will shoot me light years ahead of my colleagues, instead of “taking a refresher course”! And I’m not the only one! I have heard from everyone else—in the classroom when you ARE there, when you’re NOT, in the restroom, in the parking lot, etc—EVERYONE feels the same way!! It’s so refreshing?? You know how nursing schools are—dry, dull, most teachers are “holding a position” or else meaner than a rattlesnake! We’ve all had them. You, on the other hand, are a breath of fresh air and an inspiration to us all to leave mediocrity of practice behind and to soar with the eagles in excellence of practice and patient care. God bless you richly! I believe you are definitely gifted in this area and are fulfilling your calling with excellence. I admire you greatly. You run a very well-oiled machine in your business as well. All of your employees are genuinely polite, kind, and helpful. One just senses an environment of excellence and success when you call in or walk in the doors. I cannot use the word “excellent” enough. You all exude it. I am spreading the news of you and your business to everyone I see. I wish I knew more nurses that need refresher courses. Wishing you great success in all you do,

JJoRonda Northcutt, Spring, TX

I just wanted to thank you and Cynthia for all your help along this process of reactivating my license! I enjoyed the classes and appreciated your knowledge and teaching style. I also found the on-line classes helpful. I am so thankful for your connections with the InterFaith Community Clinic and Conroe Regional Medical Center, I enjoyed my experiences there so much!!! I met some really kind people in the process and have already signed on as a full-time volunteer at the clinic!!! I also was encouraged to apply for a position at CRMC but I will only be practicing as a volunteer at this time. I look forward to also participating in medical, mission, trips in the future. Thank you so much for helping me cross this off my bucket list!!! I'm back!!!!

Janet Patrick, Conroe, TX

Just wanted to let you know that the BON activated my lic March 27,2019. Thank-you so much. I start next month with the school district I did clinicals in . Thanks greatly in part to you. I know you must be very happy to hear from another one of your success stories. If I can do it…..anyone can. I wanted to give up several times, but it was you that I looked up to and it was you that gave me courage. I did it at almost 70 years old. Nursing never leaves you. I love it so much.
