Mission and Program Learning Outcomes
The Dietetic Technician A.A.S. degree program recognizes the importance of Dietetic Technicians as an integral part of the health care team in both administrative and clinical settings. Program training is pragmatic in its approach and provides graduates with the requisite knowledge and skills for immediate employment or transfer into a baccalaureate program. The program faculty, staff and administrators seek to develop in students a professional attitude with emphasis on personal growth and values which are compatible with the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics’ Code of Ethics. The curriculum and faculty strongly encourage the development of critical thinking, oral and written communication skills and prepares students to be lifelong learners.
