A two-year program that implements two state curriculums, Health Occupations (CORE) and Nurse Assisting. The program builds on the CORE care curriculum, which is a set of interdisciplinary courses, clinical training, and other educational exposures designed to provide health occupations students at each level with the common knowledge, skills, and values necessary to perform effectively in the evolving health care workplace.
In conjunction with supervised clinical experience, this course prepares students to become efficient and caring members of health care teams. Students participate both years in clinical settings at hospitals, nursing homes, physicians’ offices, clinics, and community agencies. The curriculum includes commencement level math and English language arts.
