They did it, left me speechless! From sutures to phlebotomy to EKG application and running a CODE these kids went above and beyond my expectations! What a great learning experience for my advanced class. Thanks to SHAW MEDIA for the pictures and capturing our Surgical Suite Simulation

Health Occupations I includes skills to prepare the health science student for a solid foundation in the health care field.  The student learns the basic fundamentals of patient care both in theory and clinical practice.  Upon successful completion of the course, the student will be prepared to take the State Certified Nursing Assistant exam.  They must maintain an 80% or better throughout the course in order to qualify to take the CNA exam.  Upon successful completion of the course and exam, we will celebrate with family and friends at a pinning ceremony that is held in May.  We have a complex understanding of the knowledge but like to have fun in class while learning.  
Health Occupations II includes skills to prepare the health science student for a specific career in the health science and technology field.  The student will be exposed to a variety of occupations in both nursing and an allied health field.  The student will be exposed to additional knowledge in medical language, medical virtual simulations, medical math, anatomy and physiology and job skills training.  They will develop a portfolio for working in the health care industry which included extensive material from their clinical rotation at Morris Hospital.  Anatomy and Physiology are discussed for interest and background rather than for mastery.  We have a lot of fun learning in the morning and have already made connections in the hospital.
