Prepare for a career in caring!

Prepare for a career in caring!

If you are interested in pursuing a career in healthcare but are unsure of what route to take, this course will expose you to many different pathways.  In this program, some of the things we will explore include pharmacology, respiratory therapy, healthcare information management and record-keeping, EKG testing, phlebotomy, and CPR.  There is so much more to healthcare than direct patient care and, while this course can help to prepare you for nursing as well, there is also exposure to so many other different options in the field.

College Credit Potential

All programs at PLCC have the potential for either direct articulated credits at select colleges and/or universities or are able to acquire college credits through career technical assurance guides (CTAGs) in cooperation with the Ohio Department of Higher Education.

On The Job Training

During the senior year, students who have met the requirements and have received a recommendation by their program instructor, have the opportunity to go on School-to-Work Job Placement.  We work with our students and local employers to place them in a job that is related to their program of study, giving them real-life experience while simultaneously earning school credit.
