Graduates of this program will be able to pursue positions that may open doors to other professional opportunities that require a bachelor's degree as the entry level. As the bachelor degree becomes the standard entry-to-practice for many allied health careers, graduates of this program will be prepared to meet this requirement. Likewise, graduates will be prepared to enter graduate programs to pursue alternative career paths.
Graduates who possess both a professional certification in one of the allied health professions and a bachelor degree will face higher job prospects than those with an associate degree only. Employment of healthcare occupations is projected to grow 19 percent from 2014 to 2024, much faster than the average for all occupations, adding about 2.3 million new jobs.
