Explore Health Care Curriculum

The mission of the Healthcare Sector Board is to provide students and parents the opportunity to learn about the amazing careers available in health care. The curriculum resources were developed to give users step-by-step instruction on how to fully use the portal to explore their strengths, careers that match those strengths and local businesses that have jobs in those careers.  This portal will allow you to take the O*Net career “self-assessment”, explore healthcare opportunities (wages, qualifications, etc.), and find out about training and employment opportunities.
