Health Careers

Students in the Health Careers Program have the opportunity to acquire skills that prepare them for successful career entry, advancement, and/or continuing education in the health field.  This program is designed to focus on the certification of nursing assistants.  The role of the medical administrative office assistant is included in the Program of Studies.  Students will receive certification as a Nursing Assistant and certifications in First Aid, OSHA Career Safe, CPR, Alzheimer’s Care, and Medical Assisting.

The first phase will emphasize foundation skills and common skills (gloving, hand washing, blood pressure, pulse, respiration and temperature) that are necessary in all health occupations.  The second phase will focus on job-specific skills and knowledge.  Skills learned will be introduced and practiced in the classroom and then transferred to patients in a hospital and/or a long-term care setting during the career technical training activities.
