Health Occupations

Instructor: Araxie DeBlois

Health Occupations is a new program designed to expose students to various allied healthcare career pathways.  This introductory course will provide students with skills and medical knowledge common among many allied healthcare professions. In the first course, students will study specific allied healthcare professions, medical terminology, legal and ethical issues, and body systems. The practical component will allow students to practice basic nursing skills, focusing on vital signs, ambulation, bed making, infection control and introduction to patient care. CPR and First Aid training will culminate with a certification for each skill.
