The event will start in the Bettendorf High School Commons and continue on for the tour of the new classroom and lab and light refreshments.
The Health Science Career and Technical Education Program at Bettendorf High School will afford students the opportunity to explore health-related careers and connect their skill sets with industry needs. By completing the CNA Program, students will be eligible to take the state certification exam. Once they pass this certification they will be able to apply with local hospitals, senior living facilities, doctor’s offices, and more! This premier opportunity for Bettendorf High School students supports access to future employment opportunities, builds a foundation for continuing education, and helps fill the skills gap our community currently faces with health care employees.
Our lab and classroom have four hands-on patient care stations offering students a supreme experience. This will give students the most realistic preparation to enhance their skills for future employment in the field.
The program has been made possible with the help of more than $34.5K in grant funding from Scott County Regional Authority (SCRA) and a Federal Perkins Grant supporting career and technical education programs.
