Students will engage in profession-based experiences in patient care focused areas. Medicine and Healthcare students pursue knowledge and skills about medical terminology, techniques in patient care, and empathy for the patients within their area of focus. Students apply their knowledge through projects and observations that require collaborative teams to tell stories, solve problems, and communicate results to medicine and healthcare professionals.
Students in Launch’s Medicine and Healthcare strand will have the opportunity to engage in the certified nursing assistant training program provided by accredited industry experts at Brookfield East High School. The class will meet during the regularly scheduled block for the Medicine and Healthcare strand. Students enrolled in the CNA training program will not miss required coursework from the Medicine and Healthcare strand.
Students will follow the state required program curriculum, hours, and experiences. The program will offer the fundamental nursing assistant skills through lectures, demonstrations, and skill practice in the 120-hour program. The hours include 88 hours of classroom and lab experience and 32 hours of clinical in a long-term care facility. After students complete the approval process, students will enroll in the course, and the school district will be paying the cost of the training program for students. Supplies, books, scrubs, criminal background check, TB test, drug screen, and Wisconsin State exam are all provided to the student.
Students in the program will need to take and pass the State Examination to gain a CNA license. Any student that withdraws from the program after the start of the course will reimburse the School District of Elmbrook for the cost of the training program.
