The Health Occupations Education program seeks to meet present and predicted needs for health care workers within a health care delivery system characterized by diversity and changing technologies.  It is a program that recruits qualified and motivated students and prepares them for pursuit of appropriate health careers.  Curriculum concepts incorporate technological advances related to the health care delivery system, including ethics, professionalism, prevention (wellness), patient/client diagnosis, treatment, care, and rehabilitation as a result of disease/disorders. Teaching/learning strategies integrate appropriate workplace basic skills assisting students to use resources and technologies, function as effective members within a complex system, and to access and use appropriate information/data.  Opportunities for expanded leadership, management, technical, and citizenship development are available through membership in the student organization, Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA). HOSA seeks to instill an attitude of pride, commitment, and professionalism in  its members, and strives to build self-esteem and confidence.  At West Henderson High School the following Health Occupations courses are offered:
