Allied Health Programs

Healthcare occupations are among the fastest growing occupations. The allied health programs at Coastal Pines Technical College are designed to assist students in gaining skills and knowledge needed to become contributing members of the health care community. These programs were developed to provide graduates with entry-level employment skills and initial certification in a chosen health field. Programs in health care have entry requirements and may have limits on the number of students admitted to a given class. For information on these programs, please contact the admissions office or the program director.

Entrance Requirements:

  • 18 years of age
  • 17 years of age (Practical Nursing, Nurse Technician, and Surgical Technology)
  • 16 years of age (Nurse Aide)
  • A High school diploma or GED is required.

The medical programs at Coastal Pines Technical College utilize a competitive admissions process, selecting students by established criteria. Each program has a maximum number of students allowed according to student-teacher ratios or clinical assignment availability. Once students are selected for a program cycle, students who were not selected may compete to be selected in the next program cycle. The minimum admissions requirements, specific to each program, must be completed before a student can be considered for acceptance into that program. Students who are interested in entering a medical program at CPTC should become familiar with the established selection criteria for that program.
