The Technical College of the Lowcountry will hold two open houses in October to highlight its programs in health sciences that include massage therapy, nursing, physical therapist assistant, radiologic technology and surgical technology. Applications will be accepted January 3, 2013, through April 1, 2013, for fall 2012 entry into these programs.
“Hospital TCL,” the first open house, will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, October 20 in building 4 at
the TCL Beaufort Campus, 921 Ribaut Road. Visitors will be able to tour TCL’s health education labs and observe current students in action as they demonstrate the latest health care techniques using TCL’s onsite, state-of-the-art simulation equipment.
“The ‘Hospital TCL’ demonstration provides a unique opportunity for an inside look at how our students learn while using the latest technology and allows prospective students to explore various health care fields first hand,” said Marge Sapp, dean of TCL’s health sciences division.
The second open house will be held from 5 to 7 p.m., Thursday, October 25 at the TCL New River Campus, 100 Community College Drive in Bluffton.
The job outlook is exceptional for all of TCL’s health career programs, Sapp said.
“Just read the classifieds, and you’ll see that jobs exist today in all of these health career fields,” Sapp said. “And these are high-paying jobs with good benefits.”
Health care will generate 3.2 million new jobs between today and 2018, more than any other industry, largely in response to rapid growth in the elderly population.
