CTE students continue hands-on labs during virtual learning

Alexandra Kincaid News

Although Dayton Public Schools students are learning virtually, CTE students are still engaging in hands-on labs to continue their work toward credentials and careers. 

Students in the Pre-Nursing program at Meadowdale High School-Career Technical Center will return to in-person labs this month. This program is designed for students who want to pursue a career in nursing after high school. Students now have the ability to earn credentials in phlebotomy, EKG, and become a certified patient care technician and State Tested Nursing Assistant (STNA). Upon graduation, students will be qualified to begin careers as an STNA immediately or pursue additional education and credentials. 

If students are interested in exploring the healthcare field but do not want a heavy emphasis on nursing, there is the option to choose the Allied Health Pathway offered at David H. Ponitz Career Technology Center. This career pathway is still focused on health, but allows students to pursue multiple career options upon graduation. Students still have the ability to become certified as STNAs through the Allied Health pathway.
