BAS in Allied Health Degree Approved at Seattle Central College

I just returned from the State Board of Community and Technical Colleges meeting where they voted unanimously to approve the Bachelors of Applied Science degree in Allied Health at Seattle Central Community College. The degree will initially house four tracks; Respiratory Care, Dental Hygiene (starting next year) Community Health and Education and Health Services Management (Starting in the near future). The Respiratory Care program at Seattle Central is in the process of transitioning to this degree and will accept the first cohort to enter the degree in Fall 2014. This degree approval brings the existing RCP program up to the baccalaureate level as well as opens up opportunities for credentialed working professionals to complete a baccalaureate degree.
