New York College of Health Professions Offers A Springboard To Any Health Care Career While Minimizing Sky-high Student Debt

June 21, 2012

NEW YORK, June 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — With crippling student debt becoming a national epidemic, New York College of Health Professions, a 30-year leader and pioneer in holistic health care and education, is pleased to provide students with a realistic and promising solution. The College is offering students with a generalized interest in a career in health care the opportunity to receive a degree in a licensed health profession that can serve as a springboard to a career as a medical doctor, nurse, other medical specialties or holistic healer.

As the only institutionally accredited, not-for-profit private college of its kind in the New York metropolitan area, New York College of Health Professions allows students to take as many courses as necessary that are likely to be accepted by other regionally or institutionally accredited colleges or universities; earn a degree in the licensed profession of Massage Therapy; or go on to a bachelor’s degree or a graduate degree in Holistic Health at the College, or transfer to another institution for Pre-Med or Nursing. Its not-for-profit status allows for tuition and fees that are a fraction of other regionally or institutionally accredited private colleges, meaning financial aid without student loans will pay for most of a student’s credits.

“Medical schools, nursing schools, hospitals and patients throughout the country are beginning to realize the importance of Integrative Health as part of a balanced background for a successful practitioner in any field of health,” stated Lisa Pamintuan, president of New York College of Health Professions. “Using this approach to springboard into a career in health – even if one chooses to study Western Medicine in the future – will dramatically reduce a student’s loans and even allow them the opportunity to begin earning money in their new, licensed profession while completing their studies.”

New York College features highly experienced faculty and offers courses taught by MD’s and PhD’s. With four convenient locations, including three in Manhattan and a main campus in Syosset, Long Island, classes are readily accessible to students from anywhere in the New York metropolitan area. The College is on the cutting edge of world leading technologies in health care, with a rich intellectual property portfolio, and has worked with major hospitals including Bellevue Hospital, Beth Israel Medical Center, and North Shore/LIJ.

“The College is offering a number of open houses at its Upper West Side, SoHo, Midtown and Syosset locations and is now enrolling for fall classes,” added Pamintuan. “Admissions representatives are available at all locations for personal interviews to discuss the programs and give tours. We’re confident that prospective students will be amazed with their options for furthering their careers in health and keeping their debt at a minimum while having access to the forefront of holistic health and wellness.”
