Health Sciences

A Future in Healthcare
Health Science Center at the Gainesville Campus

With the recent opening of the Leo & Mabel Scott Health Science Center on the Gainesville Campus the hands-on, innovative training of nurses, radiology technologist, EMS first responders, and surgical technologist immensely improved.  The new simulation center and labs provide a more authentic learning experience than ever.  Nursing programs are available at all campuses where you can earn an Associate Degree in Nursing or get your certification as a Vocational Nurse (LVN) in as little as a year! If helping to save lives as a first responder appeals to  you more, Fire Science and Emergency Medical Services certifications and degrees are also available on the Corinth Campus.
