If you are interested in earning a certificate or associate degree in a health care field, but have work or family responsibilities, Northern Essex Community College is introducing a new program especially for you this fall.

Blending online and onsite learning, iHealth@NECC offers students the flexibility to build a schedule to fit their needs. While the majority of coursework is done online students will also attend class on campus one day each week. The iHealth@NECC curriculum, which is taught by NECC faculty, is streamlined, and in some instances accelerated, giving students the opportunity to complete their program and get started on a new career as quickly as possible.

Students enrolled in an iHealth@NECC program will work with a designated career coach/mentor who will assist them with the rigors of the online learning experience. The career coach will also facilitate access to key student support services, such as financial aid, tutoring, and technical support.

This fall iHealth@NECC will offer an Associate Degree in General Studies: Health Studies and Certificates in Phlebotomy, Emergency Management, Health Care Technician, and Medical Billing. In addition, certification courses will be offered in advanced cardiac life support and pediatric advanced life support.

Massachusetts tuition and fees for iHealth@NECC programs are $245 per credit. Credits are transferrable and financial aid is available for qualified students.

Information sessions for iHealth@NECC will be offered on both the Lawrence and Haverhill campuses.

The schedule is as follows:

NECC Dimitry Building, 45 Franklin Street, Lawrence, MA

Tuesday, August 9th – from 6:00 to 7:00pm
