A clinical laboratory science program advisor assists students in planning their courses of study. Basic requirements include courses from English, math, social sciences, natural sciences, physical sciences and humanities. Students also will complete major courses and will apply campus-based instruction in a clinical setting.
Classes for CLS-BS students begin in the fall semester and continue for forty-eight consecutive months. CLS students participate in clinical rotations in laboratories located throughout Northeast Arkansas, Western Tennessee and Southeast Missouri. Students must prove their own transportation to the clinical affiliates. When determining educational cost, this additional expense must be considered.
Other costs which should be considered when determining educational expenses include, but are not limited to, rotation uniforms, vaccinations (including Hepatitis B), malpractice insurance, TB skin testing, course fees, textbooks, and criminal background checks. Many of these are requirements set forth by our clinical affiliates and/or the College of Nursing and Health Professions.
