• Academy of Health Sciences

     

    At Kingsbury High School Academy of Health Science, we engage students by using health science as a lens through which everyday problems are analyzed, approached and solved. Students learn how to think as health care professionals and rediscover the wonder and joy of learning.

    In August, a new cohort of 30 students will be inaugurated in the Academy of Health Science. NAF students will become a part of a national network with access to a multiplicity of exclusive opportunities, including scholarships and preferential hiring at prestigious multinational companies.

    Curriculum

    The Kingsbury High School Academy of Health Science provides students with exposure to various health science occupations and focuses on the Nursing Services program of study. The Nursing Services program of study prepares students to pursue careers in nursing field. Upon successful completion of this program, students will be able to utilize appropriate interpersonal skills in communicating with constituents, maintain residents’ rights and independence, provide safe care, prevent emergency situations, prevent infection through infection control, and perform required nursing assistant skills.

    Successful completion courses and certification exam provides students the opportunity to seek immediate employment as a Certified Pharmacy Tech, Certified Clinical Medical Assistant or Patient Care Technician.

    This program of study also provides a foundation for students who plan to seek a degree in medicine and/or enter medical school.
