Become a certified Life Coach in the field of Health Sciences with courses including Nursing, Public Health, and Therapeutics.
Health career paths can be divided into general roles like diagnostic (testing to see whats wrong), technical (taking care of technology aspects), therapeutic (moving the patient toward healing) and direct patient care (caring for the patient in other ways), although there is some overlap in a few roles. There are a few hundred potential jobs and dozens of potential settings that one could work in.
This program focuses on select health careers, studying a variety of different levels, responsibilities, settings, education needs and amounts of patient contact. We will look at things like the degree or training needed for each job, the working environment and the facts of the actual working day.
*Students have access to all program materials for one year after original enrollment date. Certificates are awarded upon successful program completion.
This course is an overview of health careers and overriding principles central to all health professions. Units include: science and technology in human health, anatomy, physiology, and disease development privacy, ethics, and safety in health care communication and teamwork in the health care environment health careers; creating a diverse workforce of lifelong learners?.
Allied health career paths can be divided into general roles. Diagnostic (testing to see what's wrong), technical (taking care of technology aspects), therapeutic (moving the patient toward healing) and direct patient care (caring for the patient in other ways).
In this course, we will focus on different levels, responsibilities, settings, education needs and amounts of patient contact. We will look at what additional training is needed for each job, the environment one would work in, how much income the allied health careers produce, and the responsibilities of the working day.
This course is the overview of modern-day forensic science careers. Students will explore how science concepts are used to collect and analyze evidence and link evidence back to the crime and suspects in order to present admissible evidence in courts of law.
Modern-day forensic science practices have come into being thanks to the contribution of science and legal professions seeking ways to study crime scenes and criminal activities in an effort to stop crime.
This course identifies science concepts and critical thinking in the area of forensic science. Following the presentation of the concepts, students are encouraged to conduct online research exploring examples and applying the concepts just learned. Links to case studies and interactive learning tools are supplied along with high-quality research sites. Projects are assigned throughout the course that allow students to actively apply the information just learned. These projects include simulated crime-scene investigation, actual DNA separation, development of a cybersecurity plan, and the identification of specific forensic skills used during the course of a very large murder case.
This course provides students opportunities to compare and contrast the various academic and clinical training pathways to an entry-level position in nursing and to explore the growing number of opportunities for professional advancement given the proper preparation and experience.
More registered nurses work in healthcare than any other professional position; at the same time, a national shortage of qualified nurses exists and is projected to become significantly worse by 2020. As new nursing positions become available and a significant number of registered and licensed practical nurses approach retirement age, there are opportunities for recent graduates of accredited nursing programs throughout the country.
In this course, students will focus on the preparation for entry to practice, along with navigating the field once you are in it (working as part of a team, dealing with patients, etc). In order to help you to best choose your career path, we will study different roles, responsibilities, settings, education needs and amounts of patient contact. We will examine additional training needed for each job, the environment one would work in, how much income is produced, and the responsibilities of the working day.
In this course, students will explore the multiple definitions of public health and the ways that these definitions are put into practice. Students will identify the five core disciplines and the ways that they interact to reduce disease, injury and death in populations. By understanding the roles of public health, we are able to gain a greater appreciation for its importance and the various occupations that one could pursue within the field of public health.
This course teaches students about careers in laboratory science while simultaneously instructing them on major concepts in the biological sciences.
This course focuses on careers that help restore and maintain mobility and physical and mental health, such as physical therapists, physical therapy assistants, occupational therapists, athletic trainers, massage therapists, dietitians and dietetic technicians, art therapist, neurotherapists, vocational rehabilitation counselors, and registered dental hygienists.?Each career is explored in depth, examining typical job duties, educational and licensure requirements, working conditions, average salary, and job outlook.
