This event covers everything you will need to know about admissions to Dental Hygiene, Dental Assisting, Nursing, Radiologic Technology, Veterinary Technician, Pre-Hospital/Paramedic, Certified Nursing Assistant, and College of Southern Nevada's Surgical Technologist or Radiation Therapy programs. Each session will be held at the Dandini Campus, and the days/times for these information sessions are:

  • Thursday, March 14 in RDMT 111, 9–11 a.m.

If you can’t attend these Information Workshops, you can schedule an appointment with an academic advisor for a one-on-one session or distance advising if you are currently out of state. For more information about the Allied Health Information Workshops, contact Courtney Hytinen.
