Welcome to the Health Sciences Division


For over 60 years, Shasta College has provided four major healthcare programs to Shasta County and the surrounding North State communities.  Over the years, our faculty and staff have diligently worked to build a positive rapport with local hospitals and health care agencies.  The Associates Degree in Nursing (ADN) program; established in 1965, Vocational Nursing (VN) program; established in 1953, and Nurse Aide/Home Health Aide (NA/HHA) program; established in 1964 all have proven outpouring of quality nurses because of the height of expectations from the faculty and staff members in the department. 

Since 2007, Shasta College's Health Sciences Division has offered a variety of educational career training opportunities in our new, state of the art Downtown Health Sciences Building.  The programs we offer include, but are not limited to, a 2-year Associate Degree of Science Dental Hygiene program; a 2-year Associate Degree of Science Nursing program; a three-semester Vocational Nursing program; and a one-semester Nurse Aide/Home Health Aide program. 
The Health Sciences Division is also home to many of the Shasta College Community Education classes. Some of the programs offered through Community Education include Physical Therapy Aide,  Non-Profit Organizational Management certificate program, Youth Summer Camps,  Fireline Safety,  Health & Fitness,  and School Bus Driving.   
Our office is located at the north end of the Downtown Redding Promenade near the intersection of Market and Tehama​ Streets.  For counseling appointments regarding either one of our nursing programs or the dental hygiene program, you can schedule appointments online or call (530) 339-3606.
