CHCP’s accredited Diagnostic Medical Sonography Associate of Applied Science Degree will prepare you for an exciting career as a Diagnostic Medical Sonographer. A Diagnostic Medical Sonographer (also known as an Ultrasound Technologist) uses a transducer to emit sound waves across specific parts of the body. These sound waves echo and reflect back to the transducer to produce images (also known as sonograms) of the body’s interior. Sonograms are used to highlight internal issues that would not be seen otherwise. In order to be a successful sonographer you must be able to properly operate the ultrasound technology, display compassionate patient care, and embody professionalism at all times. After you complete your sonography training with The College of Health Care Professions, you’ll be prepared with the necessary knowledge and skills to get an entry-level job as an ultrasound sonographer.
Our Limited Medical Radiologic Technologist with Medical Assisting Skills program prepares you for a career as a limited medical radiologic technologist. As an LMRT (also known as a limited X-ray technologist), you will be responsible for performing limited-scope X-rays on the chest, extremities, skull, facial bones, and vertebral column. X-rays (also known as radiographs) are a form of radiation that can penetrate the body, creating images of the body’s interior.
An LMRT is responsible for communicating with patients about the procedures, administering the X-rays, and producing an image that is diagnostically acceptable. Once the images are analyzed, they are sent to other medical personnel for diagnosis. After you finish your Limited Medical Radiologic Technologist with Medical Assistant Skills program at the College of Health Care Professions, you will be well-equipped to take the state licensing exam and begin your new career as a Limited Medical X-ray Technologist.
With a Pharmacy Technician Certificate from the College of Health Care Professions, you will be prepared to begin your new career as a pharmacy technician. Pharmacy technicians are responsible for assisting pharmacists in duties like receiving and confirming prescription orders, assembling medicines, and providing information to patients about medications. Pharmacy technicians must be detailed-oriented and organized because they handle and assemble various medications. They must also possess soft skills like interpersonal communication and emotional intelligence since they work directly with patients.

The Physical Therapy Technician Certificate Program from The College of Health Care Professions is the first step to becoming a certified physical therapy technician. A physical therapy technician (also known as a rehabilitation therapy technician or physical therapy aide) is a vital part of any physical therapy clinic. PT technicians work under the supervision of physical therapists to help patients regain movement and manage pain as they recover from injury. Technicians are also in charge of cleaning equipment, washing linens, and performing clerical tasks like scheduling patients. With an education from The College of Health Care Professions, you will be prepared to enter the workforce as an entry-level physical therapy technician.
Cardiac Sonographers (also known as Echocardiologists or Echocardiographers) use ultrasound technology to create a specific type of sonogram, called an echocardiograph, of the heart. An echocardiograph is used to ensure the heart’s valves, chambers, and muscle contractions are all working properly and to illuminate any potential issues. The procedure may be performed when the patient is at rest or immediately following cardiovascular activity. After the 2-D images are created, the Cardiac Sonographer passes the imaging along to a doctor, who can then make an informed diagnosis. Once you complete your training in echocardiology with The College of Health Care Professions, you’ll be well-equipped to take the Cardiovascular Credentialing Exam and on your way to an entry-level position as an Echocardiologist.
With an Associate of Applied Science Nursing Degree from The College of Health Care Professions, you will be able to advance your career in nursing by becoming a registered nurse (RN). RNs provide and coordinate patient care, educate patients and the public about various health conditions, and advocate for patients and their family members. Registered nurses have a direct impact on patients’ lives and well-being, so it is imperative that they have a combination of hard and soft skills, including communication and emotional intelligence. Many may choose to become an RN after working as a licensed vocational nurse (LVN). The transition from LVN to RN is facilitated when students enroll in our program, as it is specifically designed as an LVN to RN Transition Program that utilizes a concept-based curriculum. Once you graduate with an AAS in Nursing from CHCP’s Nursing Program, you will be on your way to becoming a Registered Nurse.
Our Rehabilitation Therapy Technician Certificate Program is the first step to becoming a certified rehabilitation therapy technician.

Rehab therapy technicians work under the supervision of physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech pathologists, physicians, or other licensed rehabilitation professionals. Rehab techs provide support, training, and treatment to patients who are recovering from an injury or are adapting to trauma or disability. Technicians also perform paperwork, clean therapy equipment, and schedule appointments. If working with patients to manage their mobility and maintaining the functions of an office environment sounds like something you would enjoy, an education from The College of Health Care Professions is your first step.
A Vocational Nursing certificate provides you with the knowledge and skills necessary to become a licensed vocational nurse. A vocational nurse (VN) provides patient care to residents of short-term and long-term healthcare facilities. VNs must receive licensure and become licensed vocational nurses (LVNs) to work in the field and work under the direct supervision of a registered nurse or doctor. LVN duties include assisting patients in basic hygiene, monitoring patient vital signs, and providing preliminary nursing care. Licensed vocational nurses also provide emotional support for patients, so LVNs must be compassionate and caring individuals.
