Athletic Training professionals care for athletes, in the prevention, diagnosis, and intervention of emergency, acute, and chronic injuries and medical conditions.
About the Program
On May 20, 2015, the Strategic Alliance of Athletic Training including the Board of Certification of Athletic Training (BOC), The Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE), the National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA) and the NATA Foundation determined that the professional degree for Athletic Training be a master’s level degree. Therefore, the athletic training, as a profession, is in transition from being delivered at the bachelor's level to the master’s level.
Effective spring of 2018, the Athletic Training Program at MidAmerica Nazarene University, is voluntarily withdrawing accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) for the Bachelors of Science in Athletic Training. Due to this decision, MNU is no longer accepting students into the Bachelor of Science in Athletic Training major. Instead, students will pursue a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology with a Pre-Athletic Training concentration, preparing them for a Master’s of Athletic Training in a program of their choosing.
For more information on the Pre-Athletic Training major contact Chris Crawford, Athletic Training Program Director at 913-971-3694 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
