Individuals interested in pursuing a career in the healthcare field are invited to Surry Community College's Health Sciences Open House on Tuesday, Jan. 22 from 4 to 6 p.m. in the Richards Building (H-Building) on the Dobson campus. The event was scheduled earlier in the month, but had to be postponed due to inclement weather.

Prospective students can learn about the exciting and rewarding job opportunities that can be achieved in the Medical Assisting, Nursing and Physical Therapist Assistant programs. Surry also is now offering a Bachelor in Nursing, in collaboration with Lees-McRae College, along with Associate Degree Nursing, Practical Nursing and Nurse Aide career paths.

Students can meet instructors and get help with college application, financial aid and admissions questions. They can also enter a scholarship drawing provided by the Surry Community College Foundation just by attending the event.

“The Health Sciences Open House will provide students, along with their parents, an opportunity to tour the labs and meet faculty, ” said Dr. Yvonne Johnson, Associate Dean - Health Sciences. “Students in Surry and Yadkin counties and from surrounding areas have an incredible academic opportunity right in their backyard through Surry Community College. They can pursue a degree in the healthcare field at their community college and graduate with little to no student debt and land a job quickly. The majority of our students already have a job lined up before even graduating. ”
