The Technical College of the Lowcountry is now accepting applications for fall entry into its health sciences programs that include massage therapy, nursing, physical therapist assistant, radiologic technology and surgical technology. Apply by April 1, 2013.
Health Sciences students experience on-campus learning using high-tech simulation equipment and receive additional hands-on practice at clinical sites located throughout Beaufort, Jasper, Hampton and Colleton counties.
“Entry into TCL’s health sciences programs is highly competitive, so it’s best to start the application process early,” Health Sciences Dean Marge Sapp said.
The job outlook is exceptional for all of TCL’s health career programs.
“Just read the classifieds, and you’ll see that jobs exist today in all of these health career fields,” Sapp said. “And these are high-paying jobs with good benefits.”
Health care will generate 3.2 million new jobs between 2008 and 2018, more than any other industry, largely in response to rapid growth in the elderly population. Employment in the health care industry is projected to increase 22 percent through 2018, compared with 11 percent for all industries combined, according to the U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Federal and state financial aid options are available through the TCL financial aid office. Additionally, most South Carolina residents automatically qualify for S.C. Lottery Tuition Assistance, which is not based on need or income and can pay more than half of TCL tuition.
In-state tuition is offered to residents of Chatham and Effingham Counties in Georgia as well as to military members and their spouses who are stationed in Beaufort.
