Health Sciences Career Pathways

The NIACC Health Division offers programs that lead to a wide variety of employment opportunities. NIACC Health Science Career Pathway curriculums, although independent in structure, often provide for educational mobility through common course requirements. Career mobility is also facilitated in the LPN to ADN option for licensed practical nurses who desire to pursue the registered nurse licensure. In addition, the Associate Degree nurse is also provided educational mobility options with other RN to BSN progression programs.

Students interested in pursuing careers in the health field should schedule an appointment with the Division Chair or the Health Professions Counselor to discuss course and career transferability options.
