Campus Programs & Amenities

The Health Sciences and Public Safety Institutes offer a wide range of degree and certificates programs that will get you on the fast track to your dream career. We take learning seriously, which is why both institutes use Human Patient Simulation Technology in their nursing, paramedic, and EMT courses. This means you'll get hands-on practice to sharpen your skills and see the impact of your actions before you have clinical rotations treating real patients.

The campus Student Union provides a central location for students to unwind and relax after a long day on the field or in the classroom. Featuring a food court, study rooms, and a conference center on the second floor, the Union offers a range of amenitites to cater to the needs of students, staff, and visitors.
