NGU Named Best in SC for Health Science Majors

Zippia.com, an online platform created in 2015 to offer tools to find the right career, has ranked North Greenville University’s (NGU) health science program fifth best in South Carolina in offering the best career opportunities for health and wellness majors. Zippia is passionate about improving career outcomes and is their reasoning for gathering experts in the fields of technology, marketing, and engineering to help students “make the most intelligent and personalized resource for career questions.”

According to Zippia.com, they approach the ranking like prospective health and wellness majors would, by looking at data on how schools perform and comparing them to one another.

They took data provided by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) and College Scoreboard data from ED.Gov to understand what health and wellness departments offer the best career opportunities. They scored each school on three criterion: career results – mean earnings after six years, mean earnings after 10 years, and ratio of people working to not working after 10 years; health and wellness emphasis – percentage of graduating class that are health and wellness majors, and school performance – admissions rate, graduation rate, average cost of attendance, and median amount of debt.

“Our health science faculty is thrilled and humbled by the success of our program graduates,” said Department of Health Science Chair Christine Haltiwanger. “Our students are not only academically competitive, but their field experience requirement is unmatched.  These advantages paired with our Christian emphasis and professional work ethic leave our students with numerous and sustainable work opportunities.”
