The health career pathways certificate is designed for the student who is interested in an allied health career but unsure as to which career they want to enter. This certificate is also a transfer pathway to nursing programs (ASN and BSN programs) as well as other health fields.

Program Details

The health career pathways certificate consists of eight courses and students are able to complete the program in three semesters. This program is not intended to give students skills to enter the field of health care. Graduates of this program specifically transfer into another health field related program. All of the above courses transfer into the medical assisting degree and/or the health care management degree programs, should the student want to earn a degree.
