Admission to Health Professions Programs

[space px=”20″]

Welcome to the Department of Health Professions.  The programs offered by the Department of Health Professions aim to prepare students for various health careers that can help address health disparities in the community. Students may elect careers in medical technology, nursing, or occupational assistant.

The curriculum for each of these  majors is designed to blend liberal arts and professional education.  In addition, the design of the professional curriculum is based on  prerequisite education in the basic sciences and a conceptual core of  knowledge in the health sciences.

Acceptance is based on matriculation at Navarro College, completion of a minimum number of credits, specific prerequisite coursework and attainment of a minimum grade point average, and approval of the discipline Admissions Committee (see each discipline for details). Applicants are not considered “accepted” until they receive a letter from the respective department stating acceptance in a particular program.[divider] [space px=-30]
