The Health Science Program provides the secondary student with orientation, exploration, and preparation into the health care industry. Courses are sequenced to provide continuous student progress toward achievement of a career major goal in either an Allied Health or Pre-Nursing major. The integration of literacy, numeracy, science, employability and technical knowledge is a vital component of each course offering.
This program assists the student in developing essential cognitive, affective, and psychomotor skills and the flexibility to design an individual course of study focused on specific learning goals. The program is designed for students who desire entry-level training and/or plan to enroll in a post-secondary program in one of many occupational areas in the health field. After obtaining a satisfactory performance level in the health care core competencies, the student may obtain work experience in a health-related facility.
