    If you received military training as an allied health professional, you may be within five courses of earning your associate’s degree.*

    How It Works

    We have evaluated specific allied heath specialties (MOSs/NECs) and mapped them to our Associate of Science in Health Science degree plan. This helps ensure your prior military training transfers into Kaplan University as college credit. Additional opportunities to earn credit, including challenge exams, could bring your goal even closer.† See below for a list of evaluated MOSs and NECs and examples of how they may transfer into the degree plan.

    If you transfer in the maximum number of credits (65 quarter credit hours toward the 90 quarter credit hour degree) the remaining courses could be completed in just three 10-week terms (taking two courses each term). This could put you within 8 months of earning a degree. 

    The Telemetry Option

    As part of the Associate of Science in Health Sciences program, you may be able to take an in-depth course in telemetry, a growing career field within health sciences. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, job opportunities in this area are expected to grow 39 percent during the decade ending in 2020.

    Telemetry technicians monitor the heart rhythms of patients in cardiology or intensive care unit settings. You will have the opportunity to study basic cardiac terminology, anatomy related to the heart, and electrophysiology, as well as regulatory and compliance standards to include patient safety, documentation, and interaction skills. This course is designed to prepare you to take the Certified Rhythm Analysis Technician Examination offered by Cardiovascular Credentialing International.§
