The goal of the Center for Health Professions is to provide a place where health professions students can come to relax, connect with professors, and engage in study groups. The Center offers access to health care faculty and professional advising, assistance with registration and career exploration into any of the 21 health professions certificates and/or degrees offered at NECC. Need to grab a snack, use a computer, print an assignment, come on in!
