career pathway

The Healthcare Career Pathway explores careers such as nursing assistant, pharmacy technician, practical nursing, lab technician, dietician, dentist, physician, and more. Healthcare careers are for students who are compassionate, team players, problem solve, enjoy learning, are flexible, and detail oriented.

The IASC Next Healthcare Career Pathway allows students to explore and prepare for careers in the Healthcare field from practical nursing to physical therapy to dentistry and beyond. The Healthcare Career Pathway begins with an Healthcare Careers Exploration course that teaches the core functional areas of healthcare and needed skills for those areas, then students can take classes such as Medical Terminology, Human Anatomy, and College Prep Biology. As juniors and seniors, students can earn college credit and certifications in the CIS Intro to Healthcare Core Concepts and Nursing Assistant classes. These classes also give students clinical and lab experiences to see first-hand what it’s like in a healthcare environment. Seniors are also able to participate in a Career Internship with a local healthcare facility to have extended time learning about career options in healthcare settings.
