HEALTH CARE SUPPORT

The Health Care Support program offers exciting opportunities for people who are considering entry into the health care field, as well as to current health care providers who want additional credentials or an Associate of Applied Science degree to complement their current skills. The program allows students to complete personal goals for attaining credentials required or preferred by employers in nearly all health care sectors - hospitals, long term care centers, ambulatory healthcare centers, physician practices, home care, and community services. Students may also complete the AAS degree, which offers courses relevant to many other health care professions, as well.
