The LCC DA Program partners with Community Health Center of Southeast Kansas for access to radiology equipment and student/patient interactions.  Coursework and hands on clinical instruction is done at the Cherokee Center.  In February 2013, CODA granted the DA program initial accreditation status.

Students no longer have to travel to Springfield or Topeka for this specialized training.  Accreditation was granted by CAAHEP in March 2013. 

The first of the LCC Health Science Programs, the LCC Nursing Program has been training students for more than 45 years.  The Nursing Program offers both LPN and RN training. 

The PTA Program is housed in the Ted Hill Physical Therapist Assistant Building and has been accredited since 2012. The program is designed to be completed in just one year. Physical Therapist assistants are in high demand and the field is expected to have higher than average growth by 2020. 

This 23-month program prepares students to become qualified radiologic technologists.  The program is a building block to continue on to other imaging modalities such as Sonography, Radiologist Assistant, and more.

For nearly 30 years, the Respiratory Therapy Program has been training students how to save lives.  Respiratory Therapists are heart and lung specialists and work in a face-paced, diverse environment. 

Registration is free, and lunch is provided to those who register by Friday, October 26.  Interested persons can register online at or by going to the Labette Community College Student Success Center's Facebook page.
