The health services would be for any student who wants to be in a healthcare profession. There are over 20 programs they could choose from. There's literally a niche for everybody if you want to be in health care.
The programs all have classroom, lab, and clinical, and it all runs simultaneously. So it's all structured-- it's where they're doing it all together at one time. And all of that is preparing them for that entry-level position. All the equipment in the labs are state-of-the-art, and they're comparable to what they will actually be seeing when they start working.
So for most of our health science programs, our students are working in clinical here in our area, they are doing their clinical experience in our affiliations with our area hospitals, our area labs, our dental clinics. A lot of them receive job offers even before graduation.
Our nursing program, it's one of the top-rated programs, I think in this state, of course, our area, and around the nation. But the program prepares the students to pass their board exams so that they can work here locally, around the state, and even outside the state.
Most allied health programs are set up on "terminal degrees," which means that upon completion, graduates are ready to enter into the workforce. There is not one of us who can not walk into a facility somewhere and be able to do the work that is put before us.
