My name is Shante Pinkney-Taylor, and I’m the owner of Next Level Healthcare Institute, an allied health training school in Rock Hill, SC.

My mission is to empower and prepare students with the
fundamental building blocks to succeed academically while providing excellent patient care.

 

I obtained a Bachelor's of Science in Nursing from South Carolina State University in 2003, a Master’s in Health Administration and Management alongside a second Master’s of Nurse Practice with a concentration on Family.

I am an active member of the Order of the Eastern Star-Rising Star No. 284, charter member of Iota Phi Lambda Sorority, (Zeta Eta Chapter), Minority Business Leaders Network of Rock Hill, Charter Advisory Board member, Carolinas Referral Group-Rock Hill Membership Chair, and Youth Director & Praise & Worship leader at Pleasant Ridge Baptist Church.

My personal interest includes singing, catering, and volunteering in the community. My favorite quote is: “No matter how you feel, GET UP, DRESS UP, SHOW UP, and most importantly NEVER GIVE UP!”
