If you want to work in healthcare but don't want to be a nurse, we have several programs that may fit your interests. The programs listed below are all selective admissions programs.  This means you have to apply for admission into these programs and admission is limited to a certain number of qualified applicants.  These programs take from one to two years to complete. Completion of these programs will earn you a certificate, diploma, and/or an associate degree.
