The Snow College Allied Health department offers courses of study in the following entry-level health-related occupations:
Nursing is an exciting career field that offers a variety of interesting opportunities. Being able to work in diverse work settings, having flexible hours, and the chance to travel the world are some of the opportunities that a nurse has. Nurses also have the ability to make a difference in people’s lives by the caring and compassionate services they provide, making this a very satisfying career.
Not only is nursing very rewarding, it is also one of the fastest growing occupations in the U.S. There is a greater need in the nation, and across the world, to hire nurses than any other healthcare worker. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the job outlook for Practical and Registered Nurses are projected to grow 12+% faster than the average occupation. Nursing is a prestigious and in-demand profession that offers good earning potential and job security.
The Snow College Allied Health Department offers CNA, PN, and PN-RN programs. These programs develop the critical thinking skills necessary to be successful and provide opportunities to engage in the community and with patients. The nursing department also has a state-of-the-art lab facility on the Richfield and Ephraim campuses to give students a hands-on experience that is essential for a well-rounded education. The nursing department is committed to a thorough education that will enable students to have a successful career and be caring providers.
So is nursing right for you? The range of nursing specialties is almost as varied as the personalities of the nurses themselves, so no matter what kind of person you are, there’s a place in nursing for you.
The Mission of Snow College Allied Health Department is threefold:
Through quality instruction the Allied Health Department will also facilitate the development of integrity, responsibility, the need of life-long learning, and community services as health care providers.
