Health Careers

Health and medical fields are ever changing and ever growing. The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts the most employment growth by 2022 will be among healthcare jobs. North Arkansas College’s Allied Health programs are some of the most popular programs at the college.

Northark also offers a Certified Nursing Assistant program through Area Health Education Center (AHEC) for students who don't feel like a degree or certificate is the route for them.
