Continuing Education and Community Engagement

Education at Methodist College doesn't just end with a diploma or certificate, it extends into a professional's career! We offer continuing education programs for healthcare providers spanning Health Care and Human Services professions such as Nursing, Medical Assistant, Social Workers and Counselors.

We also host community events for adults -- and even kids -- who are interested in learning more about Health Care and Human Services.

Basic Life Support CPR Certification

Basic Life support is a two-step process:  an online eLearning module and a hands-on session on campus.    Please view the program flyer for detailed instructions on completing your BLS certification

Half hour appointments for the hands-on portion are available on the following dates:


SAT Test Prep Courses

Using the successful Victory Math and English curriculum from Cambridge Educational Services, our Methodist College instructors will teach the 24 hour program that is nationally-documented to improve scores by more than 100 points. Students will gain experience and confidence by taking two "retired" SAT exams that will provide the instructor with immediate feedback to guide the students in areas of improvement.


The Wellness Forum

The Wellness Forum gathers health care and human service professionals to share new research and innovative practices in a critical area of human care.  The forum is held each spring on the Methodist College Campus and offers continuing education credit to Nurses, Social Workers and Counselors.  More information can be found here.  


Learn and Serve Summer Camp

Methodist College's Learn and Serve Camp combines fun, hands-on learning experiences in science and healthcare with real life community service projects.   The camp features upper level Methodist College Nursing students as the camp leaders who help design and deliver the curriculum.  The camp is offered each summer to incoming 5th-9th graders.  More information can be found here.
