North Shore Community College is making changes!
You can start your application today! As always, there is no cost to apply to North Shore Community College.
For Fall 2020, most of NSCC's courses will be virtual – including online, hybrid, and videoconference – to ensure our community's safety and maintain social distancing. Targeted courses that need to occur face-to-face on campus will occur predominantly in lab based classes, using social distancing protocols.
Combine healthcare and administrative support with a career in Medical Assisting
Medical assistants are multi-skilled health professionals that work alongside doctors, nurses and other healthcare specialists in hospitals, medical offices and clinics performing administrative and clinical duties. NSCC’s Medical Assisting one-year certificate program provides classroom instruction and practicum experience that emphasizes patient care in the office or clinic, as well as administrative and communication skills. Upon graduation, students may find employment opportunities in private physicians' offices, group practices, ambulatory care clinics, HMO clinics, community health centers, and public health facilities.
