Meeting the Challenge of Evolving Health Care Needs

As our understanding and health needs have evolved, there has been a greater demand for health professionals to meet rising costs and challenges, such as an aging population.

Our college is composed of four schools: Nursing; Allied Health; Social Work and Kinesiology, Counseling and Rehabilitative Science. Each school helps prepare our students to face these challenges. All of our programs are fully accredited by their respective professional and/or educational accrediting agencies.
