The Department of Health Sciences and Nursing offers a number of programs specifically designed to meet the needs of a dynamic healthcare system. Clinical programs prepare students for national certification in a variety of health professions. In addition, the general health science major provides the foundation necessary for students to go on to medical and other health-related graduate programs. Our nursing programs, however, are designed for nurses considering advanced study who already hold a professional license as a registered nurse.
Faculty and students are actively engaged in the healthcare community through clinical affiliations, research, and community outreach. The department maintains a relevant, up to date curriculum that reflects the college’s resolve to achieve “excellence through relevance,” evidenced by the direct clinical impact of our students working in the local healthcare community, the number of graduates that achieve national certification or admission to medical or related professional programs, and by the employment of graduates in health-related careers.
