Workplace research shows that one of the most rapidly growing areas of employment is health care. EITC's Health Professions Division is a combined group of programs consisting of Certificated Nursing Assistant, Dental Assisting, Medical Assisting, Practical Nursing, Registered Nursing and Surgical Technology. These programs provide students with the knowledge and skills that enable them to join other professionals in this expanding career field. Students may take some courses in the Health Professions Division prior to declaring a major field of study.

Students are subject to the policies of the program they select. They will be given a policies and procedures manual at the beginning of the professional portion of the program and will be required to sign a document of understanding. Credit for prior experiential learning will not be granted.

A criminal background check is required to meet clinical practicum site requirements. History of a misdemeanor or felony involving moral turpitude may render the student not eligible or they may experience difficulty becoming licensed, certified, or registered and in finding employment in health care. It is recommended that prior to enrollment the applicant contact the appropriate state and/or national regulatory agency.

All Health Professions Division students, regardless of program, must provide the following information prior to being accepted in the professional courses:

  1. Documentation of the following current immunizations is required:
