New partnership for Naz students to pursue chiropractic or clinical nutrition advanced degrees

Published January 31, 2022

Students who'd like to become a chiropractic doctor or clinical nutritionist have new opportunities to start their education at Nazareth College and seamlessly move on for a graduate degree from Northeast College of Health Sciences (formerly New York Chiropractic College) in Seneca Falls, N.Y.

Nazareth students pursuing a bachelor of science degree in biologytoxicology, or biomedical sciences are eligible. As long as they complete the letter of intent and meet admissions requirements, they are guaranteed a spot in their desired graduate program — for a Doctor of Chiropractic degree or an M.S. in Applied Clinical Nutrition (online) degree. For students achieving a specific grade point average upon entry, Northeast College provides a one-time $1,500 or $2,500 scholarship.

“Northeast’s programs are dedicated to advancing healthcare, and we are eager to work with Nazareth to educate tomorrow's healthcare leaders," said Northeast College President Michael Mestan, who is a Doctor of Chiropractic and holds a doctorate in educational administration specializing in higher education. "We look forward to welcoming Nazareth graduates committed to healing and transforming lives."

Amber Charlebois, Nazareth assistant professor in chemistry and biochemistry, said she is excited about this multi-program partnership. “It’s a wonderful opportunity for students to use their Nazareth education as a springboard into a professional program that focuses on health and wellness,” she said.

Students need to complete the letter of intent to Northeast College of Health Sciences during their first year at Nazareth, and then apply to Northeast College of Health Sciences one year before the desired entrance date.
