Welcome to Weaver Academy's Health Sciences!

    The classes I have the pleasure of teaching include: Honors Nursing Fundamentals (CNA course) and Honors Pharmacy Technician.


    Recommended Prerequisite: Students should have obtained a "C" OR better in Health Science II and be in Grade 12.

    Personal care and basic nursing skills are taught to students who want to earn the Certified Nursing Assistant I certification.  Students complete state-required classroom hours, and lab hours with 100% mastery of nurse aide skills before completing forty (40) hours in clinical rotation at a local nursing home facility.  During required clinical rotation, students in this course, may work independently at times and must exhibit maturity, empathy, honesty, dependability, patience, responsibility, confidentiality and discretion.

    Pharmacy Technician is a self-paced computer-based course designed to prepare high school seniors to become certified Pharmacy Technicians.  Students learn federal law, medication used in major body systems, calculations, and pharmacy operations.  An internship in a pharmacy is required. Students are able to take the pharmacy technician certification examination (PTCE) before graduation.
