Health Careers Academy

Description

Throughout the two-year program, students have the opportunity to gain knowledge and skills in many health related areas. Students gain knowledge in areas such as anatomy & physiology, medical terminology, medical math, legal and ethical issues, safety, body mechanics, human growth and development, and nutrition. During hands-on practice, students learn patient-care skills such as vital signs, administering medications, hearing and vision tests, performing EKG's, drawing blood, performing laboratory tests, personal care, and ambulating patients. The program operates in simulated work environments to develop a person's work ethics, professionalism, and employability skills.

After graduation, students may gain employment as a Nurse Aide in a long-term care facility, become a home health aide, a patient care technician, a phlebotomist, clinical laboratory assistant, or a medical assistant. Students may also choose to further their education at a community college or four-year university.
