Any student considering a career in healthcare has the opportunity to explore and prepare by taking Health Science courses at Scottsboro High School. Exploring careers in healthcare, learning basic skills in healthcare, participating in clinical shadowing and internships with healthcare professionals, and achieving healthcare certifications are just a part of the Health Science sequence.
HOSA: Future Health Professionals is a Career/Technical Student Organization that provides student opportunities in service and leadership.
Mrs. Kathy Potter
I am a registered nurse with a background in med-surg, surgery and ophthalmics. I am also a certified teacher, having taught Health Science since 1997. My favorite part of teaching is watching a student find a future career goal that they are passionate about, and work to achieve success. It is not unusual for the healthcare professionals that we see at clinical rotations be former students. It is very fulfilling to see former students mentor current students and invest in the future of the healthcare of our community.
