Black Hawk College is expanding its health care programs.
Potential students, health care employers and individuals interested in teaching in the health care area are invited to a Health Care Career Information Session from 5-7 p.m. Thursday, April 24 at the Community Education Center in downtown Kewanee.
“The health care field is expanding while becoming more complicated,” said Betsey Morthland, dean of health sciences at Black Hawk College.
“We are expanding to help students get trained and employers to find skilled health care workers. So we are looking for teachers in everything from clinical procedures to records management,” she said.
On April 24, there will be a short presentation on health care careers, tours of the well-equipped health care classroom as well as individual consultation with students, employers and potential teachers.
Two new programs will be offered at the Community Education Center this fall – Medical Billing Specialist and Medical Coding Specialist certificates. These programs are in addition the Basic Nurse Assistant Training (CNA) and Medical Assisting programs already offered at the center.
Professional and Continuing Education classes, such as Phlebotomy Technician and Pharmacy Technician, also are available to provide new skills or a quick entry to those careers.
The Community Education Center is at 404 E. Third St., Kewanee. For more information, contact David Harris at 309-854-1875 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
