Public relations AT Career care institute, Higher Education
Maintaining three Southern California campuses, Career Care Institute provides its communities with top-tier training in the high-demand areas of vocational nursing, dental and medical assistant positions, and digital radiology. Career Care Institute’s curriculum is designed to take advantage of a consistently expanding health care sector in which qualified technicians are actively sought out by medical service providers. Particular areas of projected growth are in the home health care and nursing care sectors.
The Institute’s Medical Assistant program combines clinical practice with theoretical knowledge elements, and provides significant hands-on training through a Skills Lab curriculum. Upon completing the core program, students undertake 160-hour externships through local clinics, hospitals, research facilities, and specialty medical offices. As their careers progress, medical assistants typically advance either into senior nursing or office management and administration responsibilities.
One innovative aspect of the Institute’s vocational nursing program is that it has offered students iPad 2 tablets as a learning tool since late 2011. In and out of the classroom, Career Care Institute students are able to take advantage of the technological capacities and real-time communication possibilities digital tablets offer.
