TCL health sciences accepting applications

1 min read

The Technical College of the Lowcountry is now accepting applications for fall entry into its health sciences programs that include massage therapy, nursing, physical therapist assistant, radiologic technology, surgical technology and medical assisting. Applications are due April 17, 2018. 

“Entry into TCL’s health sciences programs is highly competitive, so it’s best to start the application process early,” Health Sciences Dean Glenn Levicki said.

Health Sciences students experience on-campus learning using high-tech simulation equipment and receive additional hands-on practice at clinical sites located throughout Beaufort, Jasper, Hampton and Colleton counties.

By combining classroom and clinical education, TCL health sciences programs truly prepare students for their careers. Plus, TCL students perform exceptionally well on licensing exams – each program boasts pass rates higher than the national average.

“TCL’s health sciences programs, all of which are nationally accredited, are vigorous and demanding but produce extremely qualified and successful graduates,” Levicki said. 

Employment in health care occupations is expected to grow 19 percent from 2014 to 2024, much faster than the average. Over this same time about 2.3 million new health care jobs will be added, more than any other group of occupations. This expected growth is due to an aging population and because of more individuals having access to health insurance, according to the U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics.
