Health Occupations

The Health Occupations program seeks to meet present and predicted needs for health care workers within a health care delivery system that is characterized by diversity and changing technologies. It is a program that recruits qualified and motivated students and prepares them for pursuit of appropriate health careers.

The curriculum is designed to offer a foundation of knowledge and skills necessary to health career preparation. Teaching/learning strategies integrate appropriate workplace basic skills that assist students to use resources and technologies, function as effective members within a complex system, and to access and use appropriate information/data.
A relevant connection between abstract theories and concrete applications is emphasized throughout the curriculum. This is practiced through collaborative teaching with health professionals and on-site clinical practice.

There are two courses offered in our Health Occupations program:  Certified Nursing Assistant and Medical Science.
