NEW NON-CLINICAL HEALTH SCIENCE PROGRAM!!
NKU Online Learning now offers the Bachelor of Science in Health Science Non-Clinical Program. The BS-Health Science Non-Clinical is a degree-completion program for those who have an associate degree but not in a clinically-based health care discipline. Students will have the option of completing a basic track and, with additional courses, a focus. The primary differences between the current requirements and the non-clinical track are the replacement of HSC 460 and HSC 413 with HIN 356 and BIS 330 within the core requirements and the defined electives; applicants to the non-clinical track will not need professional credentials. Call Educational Outreach (859) 392-2400 and ask for Natalie.
