Health Sciences

The Health Science curriculum is designed to initially prepare students for application and admission into the nursing, medical laboratory technician, or nuclear medicine programs at BVCTC. All prerequisites for these programs are outlined in the first year. If, at that time, a student does not enter into either of these programs, that student may opt to continue in the AAS in Health Sciences curriculum, choosing one of four areas of emphasis (Gerontology, Human Services and Rehabilitation Studies, Medical Coding, HealthCare Management), each also leading to a certificate in that area.  Students who are not directly admitted into dental hygiene, respiratory therapy, or veterinary technology may also pursue this degree option while earning credits toward a health care degree.
