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.

Currently, we offer programs in Nursing, Radiologic Science, Respiratory Care, and Health Science to help prepare our students to face these challenges. All of our programs are fully accredited by their respective professional and/or educational accrediting agencies.
