One 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
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
Introduction to Epidemiology
Introduction to Public Health
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
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

If 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
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
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.
The 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
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
Need to finish your bachelor's degree? Then consider spending

Thursday, February 11, 2016 from 3-7pm is our
For a Day event at National University of Health Sciences.
You'll participate in a real class, have an interactive learning
experience with a cadaver in our anatomy lab, and spend time eating
with and getting to know current students and faculty.
Saturday, March 5, 2016 from 9am-2pm is Campus
Visit Day a campus-wide event which allows you to experience
NUHS with your family and friends.
You'll learn about more than just the BS program, as you spend
time with student club leaders, housing coordinators, graduate
program representatives, etc. You'll enjoy complimentary breakfast
and lunch for this extensive program.
For attending either event, you will receive a special $250
tuition credit which can be put towards your first trimester in the
BS program. All attendees will also receive an application fee
waiver if they apply during either event.
How to Register
You may register for either event on line or contact the Office
of Admissions at

For those of you who celebrate Christmas, here are some
biomedical scientists from an Australian University who are working
hard to explain how Santa can travel so fast, fit down chimneys,
and why Rudolph's nose glows!
Do you need just one or two science courses?
Perhaps you already have a bachelor's degree but need an anatomy
course to get into medical school. Or maybe your boss at the
hospital wants you to take a brush-up course in medical terminology
for that promotion.
The great thing about National University of Health Sciences is
that you don't have to enroll in its B.S. degree program if you
only need one or two undergraduate courses. NUHS offers both a
"student at large" and prerequisite program that allow you to earn
just the credits you need. - even if it's just one course.
Choosing a National University science course is often a better
alternative to a community college or online program.
The courses are often priced the same, but the campus and
parking are more convenient and classes start three times per year
with plenty of openings. You'll learn in actual medical
school facilities, often from professionals in the field: This
gives you an edge when taking what you learn to graduate school or
the workplace. National University's student body is also a very
high caliber since the majority of those enrolled are preparing for
"One advantage to applying for our prerequisite program
versus our student at large program," says Deb Cascio, NUHS
undergraduate coordinator, "is that you can then qualify for
discounted tuition if you also apply to one of our first
professional degree programs."
If you need just one or two college level science courses, of if
you are an employer in a science or health industry and are looking
for an excellent resource for employee education, call Deb Cascio
at 630-889-6577 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more
information on which enrollment track is right for you.
