Welcome to Healthcare Sciences
Healthcare Sciences Program Overview
Our mission is to prepare students for college and/or careers in healthcare beyond high school. Each student develops a portfolio that will include a completed resume with employability skills and completed certifications. Students learn interview skills through mock interviews with local professionals and business partners. Each class will incorporate common practices of professionalism and responsibility required in the healthcare industry. All students are able to acquire Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and Basic Life Support (BLS/CPR) certifications.
During the second year of the program, we offer interested students the opportunity to participate in an internship or job shadow to learn and develop skills related to their area of interest in healthcare. We partner with educational and healthcare facilities for advanced learning and employability skills. Students must be in good standing and demonstrate professionalism, attendance and 3.0 GPA in English.
