To support an increasing number of health-related careers, CT State Community College offers many academic options for prospective students. Health career professionals help evaluate, treat, and prevent illnesses by collaborating in a variety of health fields, and individuals with many different skill levels can be successful in these areas. While some professions involve working directly with patients, others work behind the scenes, playing important roles in the healthcare field.

Students who enjoy helping others, doing hands-on or detailed work, problem-solving, or have an interest in a medical-related field, can find an affordable and flexible career solution by earning an associate degree or certificate in one of many allied health fields. Allied health consists of a group of health professionals who work toward the diagnosis and treatment of diseases. These professionals also promote disease prevention and wellness and work to support various healthcare systems.

For students interested in a career in nursing, the Connecticut Community College Nursing Program (CT-CCNP) is an innovative associate degree program of study offered at six CT State campuses. The program serves a diverse population of students, offers excellent clinical sites, and has a thirty-plus-year record of proven success.

For those students who are interested in other health careers such as laboratory medicine, occupational and physical therapy assistant, respiratory care, and more, the CT State Community College offers degrees, certificates, and associate degree programs which, in many cases, can be built upon and lead to a higher degree at our other four-year institutions.
