Tuesday marks a new school semester for students in the state.

This week the College of Southern Nevada welcomed back tens of thousands of students for their spring session.

More than 30,000 students are expected back to CSN’s three campuses. Some of them will end up in the cardio-respiratory room.

Students use the interactive tools to help them prepare for future careers in the health industry. It’s just one of a number of labs available for students interested in the medical field. The industry is growing fast which means jobs are available.

Whether you’re interesting in nursing, vet tech, sonography – there are options for students.

8 News Now spoke with the Associate Vice President of Academic Affairs James McCoy and he says this is a great time to get started in health.

“We project out to 2025 that over 18,000 new medical professionals are going to be needed in our community. And so, CSN is rallying around that and in partnernship with Nevada State College to put forward some amazing new programs and bringing out health sciences programs to scale.”

Though the spring semester just started, they are still accepting students. Along with the College of Southern Nevada, students at UNLV, Nevada State College and several other universities also started their spring semester Tuesday.
