This program is a Running Start program, which awards transferrable college credit to students who enroll.
This program introduces students to professional health care careers found within the diagnostic, therapeutic, environmental, biomedical, and information services clusters. Career pathway exploration, on an individual student level, continues throughout the two-year program. At the same time, the incredible scientific world of medicine is investigated. Anatomy & Physiology, Pathophysiology & Medical Terminology are just a few of the topics covered.
Hands-on skills are mastered such as Infection Control Techniques, Worker & Patient Safety, First Aid & CPR certification, measuring and recording Vital Signs, Vision & Hearing Screens and 21st Century Skills. A favorite project-based module culminates in an off-site simulated Mass Casualty Incident where Public Safety & Law students process the crime scene while the Health Science & Technology students triage and treat the victims.
Our NH Board of Nursing Licensed Nurse Assistant (LNA) program is an option for up to 16 HS&T II students each year. In addition, all HS&T students may choose to earn college credits for Running Start courses in Medical Terminology, Exercise Science or Medical Law & Ethics.
All students are encouraged to climb the ladder to job security through one, two and four-year and beyond post-secondary institutions majoring in specialties such as dental hygienist, nurse, physical therapist, radiologic technician, surgical technician, vet technician, pharmacist technician/pharmacist, paramedic and physician assistant.
