NMC Engages High School Students About Pursuing Health Careers (July 31, 2019)

Students from various high schools looking to further their knowledge in the health industry recently participated in the 3rd annual Area Health Education Center (AHEC) Health Summer Program held earlier this year. The program is hosted by CNMI AHEC in partnership with the Northern Marianas College Community Development Institute (CDI).

Students received introductory courses in nursing and rehabilitation and human services offered under NMC's degree programs which fall under the category of allied health, as well as science and math courses. They also received various presentations from fitness coaches, dentists, doctors, and nurses and other health professionals in the CNMI.

Additionally, two trainers from the Hawaii/Pacific Basin AHEC offered the “Create and Navigate Opportunities in Education (CANOE) Program” during the second week of the program.

The participants of the CANOE program were able to explore career interests, learn how to set goals, write a resume, improve their memory and study skills, and how to manage time and money. They also received certification training under the Youth Mental Health First Aid, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA), and CPR.

The AHEC Health Summer program participants also participated in a tour of the Commonwealth Health Center where health professionals employed at the local hospital spoke to them about the various services at the hospital and the career opportunities in the health career field.
