Healthcare

  • There are hundreds, if not thousands of different types of medical jobs. Healthcare is the largest industry, showing the highest amount of growth of any other field, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). For the foreseeable future, healthcare is going to be a great profession for career stability. The BLS projects that jobs in the healthcare field will grow by more than 20 percent from 2008 through 2018, twice the pace for overall U.S. job growth.
     
    The Healthcare Pathway culminates in a Certified Nursing Assistant (C.N.A.) Program and an on-line medical terminology class. The C.N.A. course familiarizes students with the basics of the human body and its functions, as well as lays the groundwork for caring for patients of all ages and genders. Students receive training in assisting patients with caring for their basic needs. Since the C.N.A, have daily contact with the patient they are key to providing vital information about the patient to their supervisor. This opportunity provides direct contact with patients, and allows students to meet with and talk with people who work in the array of jobs that are in the medical field. Students are prepared to take the American Red Cross Nurse Assistant Certification test upon completion of the training.
     
    Medical Terminology is a one semester course that helps students understand the Greek and Latin based language of medicine and healthcare. Emphasis is placed on the word roots, suffixes, prefixes, and terms associated with the human body. Using the on-line class provides a plethora of challenging ways to learn this somewhat dry material in a active and self-paced fashion

Whether you're interested in consulting, management and sales or front line food service employment, you will always be able to find a number of food service jobs, especially here on Cape Cod.
