This program is designed to assist the student to achieve success in healthcare programs. Students will be provided with an academic foundation that will assist in the preparation for entry into health care programs of study. Credits from this program may be applied towards health care program requirements within Connecticut’s other community colleges. However, completion of this program does not guarantee an automatic acceptance into any health care program. Students are responsible for verifying specific requirements for their program of interest. Please check with a counselor about financial aid eligibility.
* Chemistry and/or Biology may be a prerequisite for Anatomy & Physiology I. Please consult the catalog course descriptions for the health care profession of interest.
All courses taken in this certificate program can lead to our associate degree in Nursing or Radiologic Technology. Both degrees have additional requirements that must be fulfilled prior to applying. Once a student has applied, the student must be accepted to their specific program in order to begin degree program courses.
