In today’s school environment, more participation in athletics means greater potential for injury and a greater need for allied health professionals who specialize in preventative care of sports injuries.

The Nicholls athletic training program provides students with the pre-requisites for application into a graduate program in Athletic Training.

The Nicholls State University Athletic Training Program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE). ┬áThe Nicholls State University Athletic Training program has voluntarily withdrawn their accreditation and is no longer admitting students. ┬áThe date of voluntary withdrawal of accreditation coincides with the graduation of the last cohort in May 2018. The program has been placed on Probation as of February 19, 2016 by the CAATE, 6850 Austin Center Blvd., Suite 100, Austin, TX 78731-3101. The accreditation standards can be located at the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education‘s website..
