Prescott Valley Center

The newly renovated Prescott Valley Center houses most of YC's allied health programs, including: Phlebotomy, Nursing Assistant, Pharmacy Technician, Medical Assistant and Health Information Technology. Allied has partnered with Mountain Institute JTED to offer high school students a jump-start in their health careers. Students use fully-equipped medical assistant exam rooms, phlebotomy blood draw lab, hospital rooms and classrooms. Non-credit Allied Health offerings are Caregiver and Certified Nursing Assistant Bridge to Caregiver Training.

The Prescott Valley Center is also home to the Radiology Department, which offers an Associate of Applied Science degree in Radiologic Technology as well as Computed Tomography (CT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) post-primary certificate programs. Students use PACS (Picture Archiving and Communication System), a medical imaging application that provides access to images from different sources, and learn radiographic positioning and techniques in a dual-lab environment.

The center also provides general education courses, Student Development Answer Center and student testing facility.

Quotes

  • “avapai College has provided me with many exciting and challenging opportunities,” she wrote. “When I first started at YC, I thought it was just a small community college that I would attend to get my general education. That was far from the truth. Yavapai College has given me opportunities that I would not have received in my first two years at a four-year institution. My attitude and perspective on life has changed, due to being an active member of the YC community. I have learned to push the limits and exceed expectations, instead of seeing something for what it is.”
