West Windsor, N.J. - As people explore new career options in an uncertain economy, jobs in the healthcare sector continue to be strong. MCCC's Center for Continuing Studies (CCS) offers an abundance of noncredit courses, many leading to certificates of completion for students seeking entry into the healthcare field, or those needing refresher courses. Classes are held on Mercer's West Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road. Most classes are offered in the evenings and on weekends to provide flexible scheduling for adult students.

The Certificate in Gerontology offers two tracks of study, one for personal caregivers and one for practitioners. The program is an excellent fit for nurses, licensed clinical social workers, psychologists/counselors, nursing home administrators and clergy, as well as personal caregivers. Some of the courses offered this semester are Pharmacologic Issues in the Elderly (Feb. 20-27); Senior Housing Options for Older Adults (March 3); Aging, Society and Public Policy (March 24-April 14); and Case Management and Counseling (April 21-28).

The Certificate in Clinical Development and Regulatory Affairs program is offered for those who have already earned a bachelor's degree and are pursuing employment in the biopharmaceutical, pharmaceutical, and medical device industries. The Foundations of Clinical Development course will be held Jan. 18-March 14. Other courses to be offered include Regulatory Affairs: Biologics, Pharmaceuticals and Vaccines; Regulatory Affairs: Medical Devices; Clinical Coordination and Monitoring; Clinical Data Management; and Clinical Quality Assurance. Those interested in enrolling in the program can attend an information session on Tuesday, Jan. 10 at 5:30 p.m. in the Conference Center on the West Windsor campus.

The Pharmacy Technician Certification program is offered to prepare entry-level pharmacy technicians for the national certification exam. Among the other courses being offered in the spring are Privacy and Data Protection for Healthcare and Pharma (April 21-28), Ophthalmic Assistant Program (March 6-April 26), and Certificate in Complementary and Alternative Medicine, an online certification program with new sessions starting monthly.
