Allied Health Department
The Allied Health Department believes that learning is a continuous life-long process and maintains that each student has dignity and worth and brings unique experiences
to the educational environment.
The curriculum is based on clearly-stated objectives, relevant content and experiences, and evaluation of program components and outcomes.
The Department is dedicated to produce well educated health care providers with the skills, knowledge, dedication, philosophy and competence to meet the needs of the community.
The Allied Health Department offers courses and a one-year certificate in
Vocational Nursing and Surgical Technology.
Two-year Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degrees also are available in Surgical Technology, and Upward Mobility Nursing (RN).
The Department of Allied Health's Upward Mobility Nursing Program is not taking student applications at this point in time. The program is continuing to teach the students currently in the program.
It is the Department's intent to approach the Board of Nursing in January of 2015 to begin the process to reopen the program. If successful, the program should begin accepting applications in the Fall of 2015. Interested parties should contact the Department for admissions information after February 2015.
