"Connecting Your Passions, Your Dreams"



Health Careers Academy

Interested in becoming a nurse, athletic trainer, doctor or physical therapist? Healthcare is one of the largest growing industries, so be a step ahead and gain a broad-based foundation of health science skills to launch you into your dream career. 

Your first year will be dedicated to learning patient-centered care. You will also have the opportunity to earn your STNA by the end of your junior year. Then, choose how you want to continue your studies by taking the “Medical Professions” pathway and dive deeper into the medical field or enroll in the “Exercise Science” pathway and discover careers in physical therapy and athletic training.

Students will take Anatomy and Physiology using the Clark State College Curriculum. In addition, students in the program lab will partner with OHP's academic classes to participate in a cadaver lab at Clark State. Additional opportunities include college visits, community service projects, and business shadowing visits.  


My instructor has been an RN for years, and it’s easier to learn the skills necessary for the medical field when your teacher has industry knowledge.
