Welcome to PVHS Health and Medical Sciences.

My name is Nancy Mooney.  I teach Nursing Assistant I and Nursing Assistant II and  Diversified Health Occupations.  Nursing Assistant I and II prepare students to pass the Virginia Board of Nursing's Certified Nurse Aide Course. We spend approximately half of our time in the classroom building a foundation for basic nursing practice and the other half  learning and practicing bedside nursing skills to prepare for rotation to a local Long-Term Care facility.  Diversified Health Occupations (also called Health Occ) is a course designed to introduce students to many different health care careers.   We will utilize the web to research medical careers and opportunities for employment.  You will become certified and/or recertified in American Heart  BLS CPR and Community First Aide during these courses. Assignments for these classes are completed during class hours eliminating the need for homework.  If you need to contact me, call the school office at 434-447-3435 and ask for Nancy Mooney.  Please leave your name and a phone number and I will return you call.  The best way to contact me is via my email address: nmooney@mcpsweb.org
