Your Future in Health Careers

First-year Health Careers students complete core studies and train as Nursing Assistants. Students prepare for clinical training at a long-term care facility. Students study care of patients, infection control, safety procedures, rehabilitation, and interpersonal/communication skills.


Students who successfully complete the first year of Health Careers may be recommended for the second-year program. Two options are available:


Nursing Assistant Paid Work-Based Learning: Students in this program must complete the Nursing Assistant Program and pass the Michigan Comprehensive Evaluation Examination to become Certified Nursing Assistants. Students become paid employees at a medical facility and attend class at TEC two days a month.


Internship Program: Students report to an assigned medical facility daily and train with medical personnel. Students are trainees and may not receive pay for their experience. A TEC coordinator regularly visits the facility. Students must provide their own transportation and return to TEC two days a month to meet with the coordinator.
