Most of the courses, and in many cases all of the courses will transfer to other colleges and universities.

The College’s Health Science
instructors either come from a real world background or still hold
nursing or physical therapy positions. They share their working
knowledge to better prepare our students to enter the workplace.

in need of improvement.

approach saves time and money for students. We offer both skill
strengthening and degree classes at the same time, fast-tracking
