This course is developed to help students expand their understanding of the healthcare industry. Content includes: employability skills, safety and infection control procedures, and clinical skills used by allied health professionals.  In addition, students will demonstrate their understanding of the cardiovascular and respiratory systems by applying BLS CPR skills. Projects, teamwork, and demonstrations serve as instructional strategies to reinforce the curriculum content. English language arts and science are reinforced in this course. 

Students will learn how to take vital signs and have the opportunity to obtain CPR and First Aid Certification through the American Heart Association.  As an added bonus, they also get certified in Stop the Bleed - knowing how to manage hemorrhage safely.

Quizzes and tests count 70% of your grade with homework assignments taking up the remaining 30%.

Participation in Healthcare Careers Club is a great idea! - we take several field trips each year to enhance the student direction toward career and college readiness.
