Important Information for Health Program Applicants

As healthcare providers, the primary professional obligation is service to the public. Patients have the right to expect and receive quality care regardless of their circumstance and medical condition. All healthcare students at Rowan-Cabarrus will be expected to adhere to this philosophy.

Infection control guidelines and training have been developed to protect the student and the patient from disease transmission. All students will be expected to attend training and adhere to the program guidelines.
