Guided Pathway: Health Programs

Emphasis: A.S. Health Information Technology/Nursing/Physical Therapist Assistant/Respiratory Care/Surgical Technology

Guided Pathways are not degree programs. Students will not earn a credential by completing a Guided Pathway. The Guided Pathway for Health Programs prepares students to transition into a Health Programs degree program. After consulting with their academic advisor, students should select a specific, degree bearing major and process a Change of Major form with the WSCC Admissions Office to officially move from the Guided Pathway to a degree bearing major.
