Welcome to the School of Health Professions at Dalton State College. We offer a number of degrees which allow students to enter the workforce within health and human services. Students can earn bachelor’s degrees in Nursing (RN-BSN) and Social Work; associate’s degrees in Medical Laboratory Assisting, Medical Assisting, Nursing (RN), Radiologic Technology, and Respiratory Therapy; certificates in Licensed Practical Nursing (LPN) and Medical Assisting; and a mini-certificate in Phlebotomy. We also offer two Associate of Science degrees in Dental Hygiene and Health/Physical Education. Both of these degrees transfer towards a bachelor’s degree at another institution or university.

Students in the School of Health Professions enjoy working with our caring, dedicated, and highly-skilled faculty members. Our faculty is student-centered, and has been recognized for their knowledge and expertise. With their guidance, students gain valuable experience in skills courses in our campus’ state of the art facilities and labs, and at a variety of health care sites in the local and regional communities. Our rigorous programs prepare students to be successful in their chosen fields, as well as enjoy an exceptionally high pass rate on their state and national exams. Graduates from these programs are immediately employable, and prepared to meet the challenges offered in the dynamic and exciting field of Health Professions.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
