Many people seeking brain education opportunities look to programs that are accredited in order to ensure they are receiving the highest curriculum quality possible.
DeVry University announced that it earned initial accreditation from the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences (NAACLS) for its bachelor's degree in clinical laboratory sciences (CLS). What makes this move significant is that DeVry University will now be the only school in the state of Arizona to offer an NAACLS-accredited bachelor's program in CLS.
While this is promising for people who are looking to get into the field, this is also good news to those who work in laboratories around the area, as there could be a greater instance of qualified individuals applying for a job upon graduation.
"The state of Arizona undeniably faces an immediate and critical shortage of skilled and appropriately-credentialed laboratory science professionals," said Sherry Gamble, microbiology manager at Maricopa Medical Center. "Those of us who run medical labs should be encouraged by DeVry University's commitment to a program that meets NAACLS standards."
