Science Prerequisites for Health Professionals

Fayetteville Technical Community College offers Science Prerequisites for Health Professions. These courses are for students who wish to enter a health professions program but need prerequisite courses in order to complete their application. We offer all academic prerequisites in a Hybrid/Evening, Face to Face, DL-Online or Self-Paced Formats.

Once you’ve chosen your ideal profession, you need to determine which college program will enable you to meet your career goals. Then, you need to confirm which courses are required for acceptance into that program. Many health professions programs accept these courses but we encourage you to check with specific schools to verify that the courses are transferrable before you apply and/or register.

FTCC offers the courses needed to help you apply for the Accelerated Second Degree BSN Option at East Carolina University or the Interservice Physician Assistant Program (IPAP). The courses offered meet the requirements set forth in AR 601-20 that must be met as part of your Army PA Application. Please note, courses offered assist you with application preparation into the various programs.
