What’s in a Major? Plenty!

Campus Visit Day FLAre you still wondering if a bachelor in biomedical science degree is the right degree for you? If you are seeking strong earning potential, it sure is.

Georgetown University issued a report in 2015, which tracks income data for college graduates from various majors. Some of the report findings indicate that an undergraduate degree in a health or science field, such as biomedical sciences, can lead to higher paying careers, even without a graduate degree.

Here are some of the earnings data found for undergraduate science and health majors:

  • STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics), health, and business majors are the highest paying degrees, leading to average annual wages of $37,000 or more at the entry level and an average of $65,000 or more annually over the course of a recipient's career.
  • Entry-level college-educated workers aged 21-24 with health majors earn a median of $41,000 annually. For ages 25-59, this jumps to $65,000 annually.
  • The median annual wages of college-educated workers with biology and life sciences majors (ages 25-50) is $56,000

Georgetown University also projects 5.6 million jobs in the healthcare sector by 2020, 82% of which will require a postsecondary education.

Come explore how easy it is to finish your bachelor's degree in biomedical science at National University of Health Sciences. Plan a visit to campus anytime from now through August 2016 and receive a tuition incentive of $500 for your first trimester in the B.S. program, through the NUHS Summer Soak Up offer.

Mixing Online and On-Campus Classes

Double ImageOne of the biggest choices you'll make is whether to complete your biomedical science degree in an online program or on a traditional campus.  There are many advantages to a traditional campus, especially in the biomedical sciences, not the least of which is access to laboratory classes.

However, online classes can give you flexibility in balancing your degree with real life demands. There may be seasons where your day job is more demanding, or when family responsibilities require more of your evening hours. The scheduling flexibility of online classes gives you more options during these times.

The good news is that National University offers you a combination of both on-campus and online courses!  You can choose to complete your entire degree completion program on our university campus, or choose from nine online classes to integrate some flexibility and convenience into your schedule.

Here what's on the NUHS online menu:

  • Research Methods and Statistics
  • General Microbiology
  • Immunology
  • Introduction to Epidemiology
  • Introduction to Public Health
  • Pathophysiology
  • Basic Nutrition
  • Advanced Human Nutrition
  • Introduction to Botanicals and Herbs

The best way to explore if a bachelor of biomedical science degree from National University is right for you is to visit campus.  There you can discuss your scheduling needs with an advisor, and see how on-campus and online learning can work together. 

If you visit campus during the NUHS Summer Soak Up event from May through August, you'll earn $500 in tuition credit toward your first trimester in the B.S. program. Call 1-800-826-6285 to schedule your visit!

What's a Technology Bar?

Technology Bar5If your entering a science career today, you'll need to be versatile in today's technologies.  Medical fields are switching to electronic records for patient files, lab tests, diagnostic imaging files and more.

That's why National University of Health Sciences has incorporated new technology in the classroom, in the curriculum and in its resource library, the Learning Resource Center.

The National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NNLM) recently awarded National University's Learning Resource Center (LRC) a technology grant worth $4300. The grant funded a new Technology Bar and iPad Station, expanding digital reference and educational materials available to students at the LRC. A technology bar is where you can try out new technology and science apps in a relaxed environment with no pressure, at a pace that is comfortable to you.

Technology BarThe LRC now has four iPads at its new technology bar and one at the circulation desk. The iPad Air 2s offer apps suggested by National University students, such as:

"Since the use of iPads in hospitals and clinical settings is growing," says Pat Genardo. "We selected tablets and apps based upon student input. We will continue to gather research on useful apps, and ask students for recommendations on future app purchases." 

Upgrading digital resources in the LRC is just one of the many ways National University is preparing students to succeed in today's technology-driven biomedical science environment
