School of Health Sciences It’s More than a Job – It’s a Calling

The health care industry relies upon professionals from all medical disciplines, from those involved in patient care to those working behind the scenes, to operate successfully. This coordinated effort improves patient outcomes, but it requires a great deal of dedication and higher education to maintain a qualified workforce.

Our health sciences programs are designed by healthcare professionals who have doctoral degrees and years of industry experience. This ensures that our degree programs are in step with the needs of the industry today. It also gives you the right mix of advanced academic knowledge and real-world insight you can apply in the workplace.

At NCU, you get the unique opportunity to earn your degree online while utilizing an innovative Interprofessional Education (IPE) model. This facilitates collaboration among multiple healthcare disciplines and is an essential component for working in the modern healthcare setting.

One-to-one Learning Model

In each and every course, one student is paired with one faculty member, resulting in a class size of one. Featuring individualized teaching through feedback, a deeper understanding of the material is achieved and a real relationship built on mutual respect is formed between the professor and the student.

Financing

Paying for college is a major financial commitment, so we try to keep our tuition and fees as low as possible while still providing a quality academic experience. Financial aid is available to those who qualify and our financial aid team will work with you to create the plan that best works for you.

100% Doctoral Faculty

As part of our commitment to excellence in online higher education, Northcentral University maintains 100% doctoral faculty, most of whom have completed their program of study at a regionally accredited institution of higher education in the discipline in which they teach or develop curricula.

Accreditations

Accreditation is a higher education seal of approval for schools, employers, and most importantly, for students. NCU is a WSCUC accredited institution. WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC), 985 Atlantic Avenue, Suite 100, Alameda, CA 94501, 510.748.9001, www.wscuc.org.

GMAT/GRE Not Required

Another part of the NCU difference is that, upon application to graduate school, Northcentral University does not require graduate testing such as the GRE or GMAT. This means you have the ability to earn an advanced degree on your own terms.
