Admissions & Application



Employment Prospects

The expected job growth in health careers far outpaces the number of professionals in the pipeline. The shortage of trained health professionals in our area mirrors the nationwide shortage. In addition, as the region continues to become more popular as a retirement destination, medical needs will continue to increase with population growth.
