Welcome to New Mexico State University Alamogordo Allied Health Programs

Allied Health is a unit of the Career & Technology Division of New Mexico State University Alamogordo. The focus of education in Allied Health consists of courses and programs of study in healthcare that prepare students for an entry level position or career and/or prepares students for entry into a four-year college such as a Nursing or Paramedic program.

NMSU Alamogordo Allied Health offers courses and programs of study dedicated to those choosing an educational pathway in Healthcare.
