Career Opportunities

The Pre-Nursing Health Science Certificate prepares students for entry into nursing and health degree programs, along a journey toward a variety of careers such as a licensed vocational nurse (LVN), registered nurse (RN), physical therapist, and many others. Whether it is nursing, physical therapy, or another career, the Pre-Nursing Health Science Certificate will prepare students to advance their professional potential.

This certificate is designed to help students who want to apply to a nursing or health degree program, by allowing them to complete the common science prerequisites. For example, this certificate can be used as preparatory work for some Azusa Pacific University School of Nursing programs (though admission is not guaranteed). (Students should check with other schools as to whether this certificate meets nursing prerequisites.)
