Health Occupations Education
To introduce and prepare students for careers in the health care field, Health Occupations Education (HOE) is available. This three hour, morning class provides high school seniors the opportunity and participation in hospitals and health care facilities within the community. Throughout the academic year, students are introduced to basic patient care skills and a variety of careers by participating in one to two week clinical rotations. They not only discover the skills necessary for each career, they also explore the educational requirements needed to reach certain levels of professional expertise. Students will achieve CPR certification and First Aid training.
**NOTE: Students will need to provide their own daily transportation because of training rotation locations.
