If you know you want a career in the medical profession the Health Careers program is the perfect place for you. From learning the basics of patient care to knowing how to use advanced medical and diagnostic equipment, you will get to work alongside and support medical professionals in a variety of health care settings while providing quality patient care. Upon completion of one of our health careers programs, you may be eligible to become a certified nursing assistant (CNA), a certified home health aide (HHA), a certified clinical medical assistant (CCMA), a certified phlebotomy technician (CPT), a Limited Licensed Radiologic Technologist (CLLRT) and/or a medication administration technician (MAT).
The Health Careers program has four paths of study:
Each path is a semester long and is paired with another semester of our Medical Core courses. The Medical Core courses include Medical Terminology, Anatomy, Physiology, Healthcare Provider CPR/First Aid, Workforce Preparation, and a Capstone/Portfolio course.
Adult students could finish both the Medical Core courses and one of our paths of study in a single semester if enrolled as a full-time student (attending both in the morning and afternoon sessions).
