Which health science program am i most suited for

Which Health Science Program Am I Most Suited For?

  • Please refer to the yellow sheetby this title included in your packet of materials

  • Self-survey to determine which health science program best suits your:

    • Personal characteristics

    • Personal interests

    • Medical interests

    • Academic interests

    • Career goals


Levels of training 2

Levels of Training (2)

  • Certificate Programs

    • Marketable skills in a short period of time

    • Transferable skills to other programs of study

  • Associate Degree Programs

    • Upon successful completion of the program, the student is awarded an associate’s degree

    • Commonly referred to as “Two-year Programs”

    • Frequently takes longer than 2 years to complete


Certificate programs require less than 2 years to complete

Certificate Programs -Require less than 2 years to complete

  • “Marketable” – provides students with skills that they can take into the workplace and obtain employment

  • “Transferable” – skills may transfer to other health science programs.

  • Please refer to the blue sheet titled:

    • “I am Interested in a Career in the Health Care Industry! Q: Where Do I Begin?

    • A: Certificate Programs!”

New nursing program admissions process

NEW Nursing Program Admissions Process!!

  • 1. Ranking score: a. TEAS score in Math and Science (combined raw score)b. If you have completed MVCC’s BIO 180 Anatomy and Physiology prior to application: point(s) will be awarded based on the final grade: C = 1 point, B= 2 points, A =3 points. 2. Residency: Proof of Residency must be submitted with your application.


Teas test what is it

TEAS Test – What Is It?

Allied health admissions process criteria

Allied Health Admissions Process Criteria

  • Three factors are used to admit students into the Health Science Programs

  • The factors are:

    • Grade point average

    • Number of college hours completed

    • Course Success Weighting


Grade point average

Grade Point Average

  • The higher a person’s GPA, the more points they accrue toward admissions

  • Examples:

    • 3.8 GPA earns more points than a 2.5 GPA


Number of college hours weighted differently for nursing than for allied health programs

Number of College Hours -Weighted Differently for Nursing than for Allied Health Programs

  • The more college credits a person has, the more points they accrue toward admissions

  • Examples:

    • 65 college credit hours earns more points than

    • 21 credit hours


Success weighted courses

Success Weighted Courses

Program Coordinators have selected certain courses as predictors of student success in health science programs

  • Each program has a different set of courses identified.

  • Grades earned in the success courses earn points toward admissions


Points assigned to grades in success courses

Points Assigned to Grades in Success Courses

  • Example:

    • An “A” in BIO 180 will earn a student 5 success points toward admission to the nursing program

    • A “C” in BIO 180 will earn a student 3 points toward admission to the nursing program

Sample calculation radiology student has

Sample Calculation/Radiology Student has:

  • Has completed 24 college credits

  • 3.0 grade point average

  • Has completed the following success courses with the following grades assigned:

    • BIO 180 “A”

    • MTH 101 “B”

    • MRT 110 “B”


Sample radiology student admission point total

Sample Radiology Student Admission Point Total

  • GPA (3.0) = 7 points

  • College credit hours = 4 points

  • Student has BIO-180 with an A

    • 3 points X 4 credit hours = 12 points

  • Student has MTH-101 with a B

    • 2 points X 4 credit hours = 8 points Student has MTH-101 with a B

    • Student has MRT-110 with a B— 2 points X 3 credit hours = 6 points


Total points radiology example

Total Points – Radiology Example

  • GPA = 7 points

  • College credits = 4 points

  • Total points for success courses = 12 for BIO-180 + 8 for MTH-101 + 6 for MRT-110 = 26 Pts

  • Grand total: 37 points
