This certificate lays the foundation for students interested in careers in the health care field prior to being admitted into transfer programs for a variety of health-related fields. This certificate also provides an opportunity for students to complete a co-op experience or a Certified Nursing Assistant program. To progress in the program the student must obtain a “C” or better in all program courses and their prerequisites.

Prior to the Co-op experience, the Department of Allied Health requires students to successfully pass the following: criminal background check, a drug screening, AHA CPR for the Healthcare Provider and the Certification of Physical Fitness Form completed by a physician. Along with the Certification of Fitness, students must also have proof they are immunized for specific contagious diseases. Facilities may have additional requirements, which a student would also need to meet.

The Department of Allied Health orders your background check, drug screening, and immunization tracker through an outside agency, the cost of which is incurred by the student and billed as part of program assessment fees.
