Clarion's AS, Allied Health for WPHSON Students
Clarion's University's Associate of Science with a major in Allied Health is a great academic degree option for diploma nursing students attending the West Penn Hospital School of Nursing (WPHSON). WPHSON nursing students can earn Clarion's AS, Allie Health degree while completing general education course work required for the WPHSON program.
Claroin's AS, Allied Health requires completion of a total of 60 credits—30 credits of science and general education course work that must be earned from Clarion University and 30 clinical credits that are awarded for completion of the WPHSON program.
Upon successful completion of the AS, Allied Health degree program, graduates will have a diploma in nursing from WPHSON and an Associate of Science degree with a major in Allied Health from Clarion University.
Courses are conveniently taught at Clarion University's Pittsburgh Site that is located next to West Penn Hospital.
WPHSON students who have already earned general education credits at colleges or universities other than Clarion may not choose to complete 30 required credits from Clarion to earn the AS, Allied Health degree. These students may instead choose to take only the Clarion general education courses that they have not completed elsewhere. These students are classified as non-degree majors and, upon graduation, will earn a diploma in nursing from WPHSON.
