Health Sciences Program Requirements

COVID vaccination notice

Clinical agencies have mandated that students, faculty and staff provide proof of full COVID-19 vaccination to participate in clinical training. Although Wake Tech has not mandated that students be vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus, the college must abide by the mandates of clinical training partners. Students must show proof of vaccination to be granted access to clinical sites. If a student is denied access, the student will be withdrawn from the program.

This applies to all Health Sciences programs, except for Health and Fitness Science and Human Services Technology, since the Work-Based Learning sites used by those two programs do not currently require proof of vaccination.

Wake Tech's Health Sciences programs provide the knowledge and skills for challenging and rewarding careers in hospitals, labs, physician practices, nursing homes and other health care settings. Each program has a specific selection process requiring the submission of a program application. Some programs have a first-come, first-served process, while others use a competitive process to determine acceptance.

Please review the information on related pages to learn more about the programs offered, program-specific acceptance requirements and separate program applications and application deadlines. Grades of "C" or better are required in all program-related curriculum classes, except for Human Services and Health & Fitness Science.

Admission to Wake Tech is the first step to enrollment for all programs.  If you have not already applied or been admitted to the college, you can begin the enrollment process. For extremely popular programs (Dental Assisting, Dental Hygiene, Nursing, Radiography and Sonography), an information session is mandatory before program applications can be processed.
