Engage Volume 3, Number 1

The past few months have been ones of unchartered territory. The current pandemic has changed our lives, including how we learn.

But College of DuPage has been up to the challenge. Our dedicated faculty and staff have gone above and beyond to make sure students continue to receive the highest level of education possible.

By sheer coincidence, we were well into production on this issue of Engage, which looks at our health care programs when the coronavirus (COVID-19) took over the headlines. It seems fitting that this issue is dedicated to professionals who play an even more important role during a major worldwide health crisis.

If you have been a patient at any time in one of the hospitals, clinics or other medical facilities in District 502, chances are you received care from a COD graduate. The College trains students to become nurses, X-ray technologists, anesthesia technologists, speech language pathology assistants and many other professionals through more than 30 health-related areas of study found in the Nursing and Health Sciences Division. Programs offered include Nuclear Medicine, Respiratory Care, Health Information Technology and many more too numerous to list here.

As a result of their education, our graduates often achieve a nearly 100 percent pass rate on applicable board certification exams. That should be reassuring to us as patients and for prospective students looking for top- level health career programs.

This semester has required creative approaches to educational goals. This issue of Engage shares the passion of our faculty and students as they make health care their top priority.
