Healthcare Career students working in a classroom

As Americans age, and live longer and more productive lives, there is an ever-growing need for health care personnel to provide on-going care. Cecil College has developed certificate programs that prepare you academically, technically, and professionally to begin a new career in health care.

Start Your Career in Healthcare

Our certificate programs help you to acquire knowledge, skills, and experience in a planned and timely manner. Each program includes classroom training that focuses on the technical and professional requirements of your specific area of study, as well as a clinical externship that provides an opportunity for hands-on learning in the actual environment in which you will be working upon successful completion of a program.

Our programs are developed based on employer expectations and prepare students to either sit for a national certification or apply for the appropriate Maryland Board of Nursing certification. If you are looking for a career with unlimited learning opportunities and growth potential, health care may be right for you.

These are the programs we currently offer:

Coronavirus Update

Cecil College is actively monitoring the status of COVID-19 locally, regionally, and nationally. We are working with our local health department and county offices to stay up to date on the latest developments regarding the coronavirus. As of now, all classes and events on campus are taking place as scheduled.

The College is utilizing additional precautionary measures to maintain a healthful environment on all of our campuses. Our Facilities department has added additional cleaning protocols to their daily routine to help prevent the spread of germs, including the use of disinfectant wipes on high-traffic surfaces like door handles and light switches.

In addition, the College is routinely posting information regarding the prevention of germ transmission on all on-campus monitors, our student and employee newsletters, and our primary social media channels. We also have signage both on campus and on larger event promotions reminding the community that if someone isn’t feeling well or has recently traveled to any of the global, high-risk areas, the responsible thing to do is to stay home. The College continues to monitor updates from local, state and national public health officials and will update this message as necessary.
