The Athletic Training  (ATTR) Program is a selective admission program which prepares students to become highly qualified allied health professionals. The student will be educated and experienced in multidisciplinary areas dealing with the health care problems of the physically active.  The program of study includes academic, laboratory and clinical experiences in professional, intercollegiate, and interscholastic sport teams, and clinical affiliate settings. Employment opportunities include interscholastic athletic programs, intercollegiate athletic programs, professional athletic teams, corporate health programs, sports medicine clinics, health clubs, and clinical and industrial health care programs.

The curriculum is composed of two phases: pre-clinical and clinical. A student may enroll at anytime in the pre-clinical phase (first 31 hours) of the curriculum.  Students enrolled in ATTR 102 will receive information regarding the selective admission process.  Students are encouraged to visit the program’s website (www.nicholls.edu/athletic_training/admissions) to review the ATTR Competitive Admissions Process and Procedures. Due to clinical resources available to the program, qualifying for admissions does not guarantee acceptance to the clinical phase of the program.
