Health Occupations II primarily follows the curriculum of the NUR200 and NUR230 course and lab at the University of Maine at Fort Kent, thus allowing students to earn dual enrollment credits (simultaneous high school and college credits). This course also encompasses a variety of specialized curricula in the field of physical therapy, dentistry, radiology, medical office practice, E.M.T., and more. The program contains modular segments, allowing students to individualize their career focus.
Students participate in internship and extended job shadow opportunities, giving them exposure to specific facets of the healthcare industry, and providing them with experience to determine which career path to follow. Students also participate in Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA), a student organization aimed at developing performance skills, leadership skills, and citizenship abilities. Students are invited through HOSA to compete at the state level with other students from similar programs around the state.
