Health Sciences provides training for students interested in training for a career in a hospital or other health-related setting. Although this is not a nursing program, some students enter this program and then, if accepted, transfer into a nursing program if qualifications are met. Others will use the degree to open opportunities at a variety of health-care employment settings.

Graduates of the program should be able to:

  • Function as a manager in a health-related setting;
  • Be familiar with a broad range of issues and settings common to the healthcare employment setting; and
  • Identify and conduct themselves as members of the health care profession.

 

Transfer/Advising

If a student plans to seek admission to a nursing program or transfer to another institution, he/she should consult his/her advisor as well as the targeted nursing program to avoid potential loss of credits in the transfer process. NOTE: Anatomy and Physiology I and II must have been taken no longer than five (5) years prior to consideration for admissions to the nursing program.

Additional course requirements: The Tennessee Board of Regents requires that students either demonstrate the appropriate skill levels in math, reading, and/or writing before enrolling in college-level courses or enroll in appropriate co-requisite experiences with college-level courses to develop competency in those skills while performing college-level work. ACT/SAT scores, COMPASS test scores, or other relevant information determine whether a student needs to enroll in co-requisite courses in math, reading, and/or writing (English).
