The dental assisting program provides technical skills needed to work in a dental office and participate as a member of the dental health team in general chairside and specialty procedures and techniques.
The Medical Assisting Department offers two programs which will provide students with preparation for work in a medical office. Classes are offered toward certification in medical assisting and medical billing.
The Nursing program is separated into the three areas of education that build on one another: Nursing Assisting (CNA), Licensed Vocation Nursing (LVN), and Registered Nursing (RN).
All students may apply to any Health Sciences programs being offered during the same application period; however, you will not be able to participate in more than one program during the same semester/year. If you choose to apply to more than one program it will be up to the office to place you in a spot most needed. Please only apply to the program(s) you wish to be placed in.
