Patient Care Services

Designed for students who enjoy working with others, Patient Care Services focuses on basic skills and knowledge needed for employment in a health-related field. Students learn about infection control, personal care, resident relations and housekeeping as related to providing indirect care to residents of a health care facility.

Patient Care Services students gain real-world experience through job sampling experiences at health care and nursing facilities. Upon completion, they are prepared for a range of career opportunities or further training in the health care field.  Students may be able to earn up to three certifications: Companion Caregiver, Patient Care Associate, and Home Health Aide. They will earn CPR and American Health Association First Aid certifications.

Patient Care Services is a career studies program for students who want to learn hands-on at an alternative pace. The program provides challenging, developmentally appropriate career prep experiences.

Career studies programs are taught by educators with substantial experience in their profession.
