A bit of back story about the campus. In its early years, the campus commenced its journey by offering training programs for Enrolled Nurses. Over time, the curriculum expanded, and in 1979, the training of Environmental Health Sciences was introduced. Not long after, in 1981, the faculty of Medical Laboratory Technology, now Medical Laboratory Sciences, was added.

Initially, all three programs exclusively offered certificate courses. However, in 1994, the Medical Laboratory Sciences program pioneered a diploma course, followed by the Nursing program in 2000. In September 2001, Environmental Health Sciences introduced an in-service diploma course. Recognizing the demand for further advancement, the Nursing program initiated the upgrading of Enrolled Nurses to diploma level in September 2005, adding to the already thriving academic offerings.
