MSU prepares graduates to make an impact in the growing healthcare sector

As there is an increased demand for jobs in the healthcare sector, Morehead State University continues to produce qualified graduates to meet the demand.

According to the Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education (CPE), the next 10 years will see a 12% increase in healthcare jobs, nearly double the average for all other job fields in Kentucky. With more than 23,000 new health care jobs expected to be created by 2029, universities like MSU will meet the demand by graduating students with the necessary degrees and credentials in healthcare.

MSU's programs in biomedical sciences, biology, and chemistry help prepare students to attend health professional schools, where graduates are accepted at rates above the state and national averages.

“The Department of Biology and Chemistry has been preparing students in health-related fields for years with degrees in biomedical sciences, biology and chemistry, including pre-medicine, pre-dentistry, pre-physical therapy, pre-medical assistant and more, ”said Dr. Charles Lydeard, chair of the Department of Biology and Chemistry.

The MSU Department of Nursing also continues to prepare graduates for nursing careers through various nationally ranked programs and hands-on experience through simulations conducted at the state-of-the-art Center for Health, Education and Research (CHER).
