Exploring Health Care Careers, 1 Quarter, Grades 9 & 10, .5 Credit

Students interested in college majors and high demand careers such as nursing, occupational therapy, physical therapy, dental careers may earn a CTE program certificate of completion in the Health Science Technology program pathway outlined below. Thinking about a health care career pathway but unsure if it is the right option for you? Sign up for the elective, Exploring Health Care Careers.

Health Science and Technology I, Year Long, Grades 10-12, 2 Credits

The CTE curriculum for Health Science I covers common and accepted competencies associated with national and state-based health curriculum. Students in this course will learn about job opportunities in the health profession and explore career options through research, self-assessment and guest speakers in a variety of healthcare professions. There is strong academic emphasis in the following areas: Anatomy and Physiology, Medical Terminology, Infection Control, Safety and Blood Borne Pathogen training. Students will have hands-on experiences with medical equipment in the classroom. Classroom activities will include lectures, discussions, poster/PowerPoint presentations and research projects. Anatomy labs include some dissection, competitive games and audiovisual learning related to diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disease. Students will be able to perform vision screenings, take vital signs (blood pressure, temperature, pulse and respiration), and demonstrate gown-and-gloving technique and proper use of body mechanics.

Students successfully completing Health Science & Technology I will demonstrate competencies in accordance with National Health Care Skills Standards. Students will become certified in CPR for the Professional Rescuer, First Aid & Automated External Defibrillation. 

HOSA (Health Occupations Students of America) is an integral part of the program. Through HOSA, students develop leadership and teambuilding skills. It encourages both civic and social responsibility. Students involved with HOSA activities can become more involved with the state and national levels and attend the annual leadership conventions. Students considering any career in the health care field such as physician, nurse, physical therapist, dental hygienist, veterinarian, or pharmacist would greatly benefit from this course. 

Health Science and Technology II (available in SY23), Grades 11 & 12, 2 Credits

The CTE curriculum for Health Science II covers common and accepted competencies associated with national and state-based health curriculum. Health Science & Technology II continues with the completion of studies in Anatomy and Physiology, Safety and Blood Borne Pathogen Training. Attention is focused on the development of specialized tasks and skills for individualized career goals. Students will explore in more depth the areas of anatomy and physiology, mental health, wellness, health care consumerism, the aging process and individualized career development. As part of the Health Science & Technology II course, beginning in the second semester, students may choose to participate in the Licensed Nursing Assistant (LNA) Program or Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) program. The EMT and LNA programs have fees associated (financial aid and/or payment plans are available); students are also required to attend some evening and weekend clinical experiences to earn licensure. Upon completion of the LNA or EMT program, and passing the corresponding State license exam, the student is licensed. Upon successful completion of Health Science & Technology II, students will demonstrate all competencies outlined for the program in the Standard Competency Profile and those in accordance with National Health Care Skills Standards. 

NOTE: The State of New Hampshire requires an annual Mantoux T.B. test, physical exam and criminal background check for all students entering a clinical setting during the program.
