How are you all offering certificates for high school students in the Health Science area? I work at a Community College. We would like to be able to offer stackable credentials in the areas of phlebotomy, CNA, Medical Assistant, Medication Aide and Pharmacy tech for credit. These credentials are available in our community education department, but is anyone doing anything where students earn college credit for the completion of a series of certificates?

Thanks!

We offer MSA (Marketable Skills Awards) which are currently 9-14 SCH according to GIPWE to our high school students for dual credit.
You can see a list of all the ones we offer on our website at: http://www.tstc.edu/westtexasadmissions/dualcredit

Currently, Phlebotomy is CE for us (and isn't even listed on our website) but the rest are credit.

Beth: Please look at our credit/non-credit program in Medical Assisting. We are using stackable licensures and certifications to offer a certificate. Courses can be taken alone (CNA, Phlebotomy, etc.) or combined to complete a non-credit or credit program. http://www.tvcc.edu/community-services/zone.aspx?deptid=195&zoneid=744 Please feel free to contact our Community Services Dean, Gayla Roberts for more information groberts@tvcc.edu.

We offer at 16 credit program (college credit) over a two year period to our local high schools. They earn a certified nurse aide in their junior year and begin a Patient Care Program (unlicensed assistive personnel with advanced skills). Their senior year they complete a phlebotomy program and a monitor technician program along with 250 clinical hours in an acute care setting. They graduate with a certificate of completion from the college a few weeks before they complete high school. They have national certificates in phlebotomy, patient care and EKG technician along with their college certificate.
Completion of the program earns points towards competitive entry programs in our nursing and allied health degree areas. This is our 16th year and it has been very successful.
