Programs that lead to careers

The Nursing & Health Sciences Institute operates districtwide, offering course work on the Cocoa, Melbourne, Palm Bay and Titusville campuses. We're also home to a regional training center for the American Heart Association.

EFSC provides state-of-the-art classrooms and clinical laboratory facilities where students learn to apply their specialized skills. Human Patient Simulation Technology is utilized throughout the curriculum so students can practice their newly learned skill and see the consequences of their actions before they work on a live patient.

Course work can lead to a variety of degrees and certificates — all of which will fast-track you into your desired career field. Check the menu in this section for the full list of programs. Continuing education courses are also offered on a wide array of health-related topics. Many emergency first aid and CPR classes are available through the American Heart Association.

Applicants for our programs must be 18 years of age prior to the start of their intended program's clinical courses. For more information about program requirements, please view the program links and/or contact our specialized Admission and Advising office.
