Health Sciences Programs Offered by School of Nursing
Our health science programs are each accredited by their respective accrediting bodies and graduates' performances on certification examinations are above national averages for all three programs. Each program combines knowledge gained from textbooks and lectures with hands-on experience using state-of-the-art equipment and technology. Students begin their clinical experience early in their course of study, which allows them to put their classroom knowledge to work as they learn.
Athletic Training is an allied health field recognized by the American Medical Association. Certified Athletic Trainers specialize in the prevention, recognition, treatment, and rehabilitation of injuries due to physical activity.
Exercise and Sports Science majors use the degree as preparation for professional study in medicine, cardiac rehabilitation, physical therapy and other health care professions. They also use it as a foundation for careers in commercial fitness centers or corporate wellness programs, as well as professions as personal trainers or strength and conditioning coaches. Majors may also specialize in Teacher Certification (preparation for K-12 physical education).
The School of Nursing's accredited undergraduate curriculum leads to the bachelor of science degree in nursing and prepares graduates for the Registered Nurse licensure examination. The curriculum provides a broad general education and a superb professional program based on the Roy systems model.
