Health Science

It’s a unique calling – the desire to care for fellow human beings. If this is your passion, you don’t have to become a nurse or medical doctor to take part. HCC’s health science programs provide you with practical options for entering the medical field. Maybe you’re interested in physical therapy or personal fitness training? Or maybe you want to dedicate yourself to becoming a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN). Any of these are possible. Or, you can unlock a world of opportunities by choosing our Health Science program, which explores several practical medical roles, including Emergency Medical Technician (EMT), Nutrition Assistant, Certified Nursing Aide (CNA), Social Service Designee and Activity Director.
