The Health Science Career Cluster teaches students about planning, managing, and providing therapeutic services, diagnostics services, health informatics, support services, and biotechnology research and development. To pursue a career in the health science industry, students should learn to reason, think critically, make decisions, solve problems, and communicate effectively. Students should recognize that quality health care depends on the ability to work well with others. In addition to becoming CPR certified, students in the Health Science Career Cluster have the opportunity to earn industry certification including Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA), Emergency Medical Technician (EMT), and Microsoft.
