      Non-Academic Requirements for Allied Health and Nursing Programs:

     There are a number of non-academic requirements associated with the Health Sciences clinical programs. A criminal background check and drug screen are required of all students accepted into the health sciences clinical programs.  Students are responsible for the cost of the criminal background check and drug screens through an online vendor selected by the college.  Click here to view the dean's Letter to Prospective Students

     Changes to the Selective Admissions Process for Allied Health and Nursing Programs:

    Students applying for admission to Nursing and Allied Health Programs are required to take the Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS V).  The TEAS V requirement is effective for spring 2016 admission to the Nursing Programs and fall 2016 admission to any of the Allied Health Programs.  The TEAS V, developed and administered by the Assessment Technologies Institute (ATI), measures basic academic knowledge in the academic content areas of Reading, Mathematics, Science, English and Language Usage. The TEAS V is a 170 item multiple-choice examination. TEAS V is offered in a computer administered format.  Click here for detailed information about TEAS V

  • Welcome to the new Center for Health Studies

    The Center for Health Studies features 26 simulation laboratories that provide students with educational experiences in realistic settings.  In additional to state-of-the-art medical equipment, human patient simulators, and electronic medical records, the labs include a simulation recording system with the ability to capture student performance via video for evaluation and assessment.  The virtual hospital environment of the labs enhances students' educational experiences and provides valuable opportunities to develop and practice clinical based skills in a safe laboratory setting, making them better prepared for clinical experiences in actual hospital settings. 

    Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is a rating system devised by the United States Green Building Council that encourages global adoption of sustainable green building and development practices and recognizes projects that implement strategies for better environmental and health performance.  Many sustainability features are included in the Center for Health Studies design to promote a healthy and safe learning environment and we anticipate that the Center for Health Studies will become the first LEED Certified building on the Largo campus.
