Welcome to NMSU-A Allied Health!

SUNPATH: New Mexico Skill Up Network - Pathway Acceleration in Technology and Healthcare

It is the vision and mission of the NMSU-A Allied Health faculty and staff to empower and support students interested in healthcare professions by providing continuing support for each student admitted to Allied Health courses.

The Institute of Medicine states there is a need for all types of healthcare workers. They are also saying; currently, allied health professionals comprise nearly 60% of the healthcare workforce and we will need at least 1.6 million by 2020. What are Allied Health Professions? They are a segment of the healthcare workforce that delivers services involving the identification, evaluation, and prevention of diseases and disorders; dietary and nutrition services; and rehabilitation and health systems management. Allied health professionals consist of nursing assistants, phlebotomists, telemetry technicians, emergency responders, dental hygienists, healthcare technicians, dieticians, medical technologists, personal care aides, home health aides, occupational therapists, physical therapists, radiographers, respiratory therapists, and speech language pathologists.

Are you ready to join the team of health care providers? Get started by visiting NMSU-A’s Academic Advisors located in the Office of Advising & Career Services in the Student Services Building for academic pre-advising.

  • Pre-Advising provides both walk-in and appointment-based career and transfer advising for Pre-Health students.
  • Helps prospective Pre-Health students explore the many career options related to healthcare and determining which NMSU-A Certificates or Associate Degree best meets the student’s expectations and future plans.
  • Assists pre-health students with preparation of applications, which includes guidance on pre-requisite coursework and non-academic requirements such as job shadowing, healthcare-related clinical experiences and community service opportunities, plus resources to assist students in financial planning.
  • Provides guidance to pre-health students on applying for health professional programs, including the formal application process, central application services, writing a personal statement, requesting letters of recommendation, and preparing for admissions interviews.
  • Serves as the point of contact for NMSU-A Pre-Health students concerning information related to SAT and TEAS Testing.
Don’t know if you are ready yet and need more information? You can also speak to a health care professional in the Allied Health department located in the Charles Reidlinger Science Center.
