    Through hands-on experience, acquire the skills and knowledge needed for a variety of medical occupations.
    Learn anatomy, physiology, medical terminology and the signs, symptoms and prevention of disease. Students will have opportunities to research a variety of traditional and nontraditional medical careers. In addition, they will learn the foundations of health care. These include common medical terminology and abbreviations, basics of anatomy/physiology and the basics of nutrition and health. Students will then learn the role of the Nursing Assistant Certified (NAC) as it relates to the fundamental knowledge and skills necessary to pass the state certification exam. The laboratory and clinical experiences will help prepare students to function independently in a skilled nursing facility upon completion of this course.
    If the student chooses and qualifies, a portion of the year may be spent in a supervised clinical experience working with patients. This prepares students for entrance into a college level nursing program, as well as for certification as a Washington State Certified Nursing Assistant.
