Health Science in Action!
The Health Sciences cluster provides opportunities for students to experience and perfect skills required of today's healthcare industry. Health care requires a flexible, multi-skilled workforce, capable of performing as a team, being adaptable to frequent change and able to transfer skills to new environments. Students learn medical terminology, first aid & basic life support, communication & employability skills, safety systems, infection control, anatomy & physiology, nutrition, teamwork, disease entities, ethics and legal matters. As a first year student you will be placed on 50 hours of non-paid work experience at a healthcare facility. This will help you decide what aspect of healthcare you like the most. In your second year of the program you will specialize in one of the following areas of interest: CNA, Vet Science, Pharmacy Tech, or PT Aid. Certifications can be earned after passing state exams in each area. This program is challenging but success is highly achievable!
