Morgan Community College

HEALTH SCIENCE TECHNOLOGY

Health Science Technology (HST) is a program designed for juniors and seniors in high school who want to explore health science careers. Students take classes at the college and earn college credit. This program prepares students with the basic skills necessary for success in health occupation programs. During the second year of the program, students choose from three different tracks: nurse aide, first responder, or medical transcription.

Upon completion of this program students will be qualified to work as an entry level health care or support worker. After completing the two year certificate students will be qualified to sit for the nurse aide exam, work as first responder or as a medical transcriptionist.
