HEALTHCARE AND MEDICAL PROFESSIONS

               

Looking for a profession in the fast-growing healthcare industry?  Then Grant is the place for you!  We offer short-term classes in a variety of subjects that will allow you to obtain certification in your desired field, and lead you toward the path to employment!  Take a look at what we have to offer:

 

PHLEBOTOMY TECHNICIAN (CPT) - 120-HOUR PROGRAM 

   

Phlebotomy technicians draw blood for testing in hospitals, clinical labs, doctor's offices, nursing homes, and other healthcare facilities.  They may also explain the procedure to the patient, or reassure them if adverse reactions occur. Students will receive training with a venipuncture arm, as well as practical, live training before testing for CPT certification through the NHA (National Heathcareer Association).  

 

Classes begin on January 15, 2019 and end March 21, 2019, and are held Tuesdays through Thursdays from 5 - 9 p.m.. Cost of tuition is $1,400, plus a $50.00 testing/registration fee.   Payment options may be available. Please see below for prerequisites for entry into this program.*

 

STNA (NURSE ASSISTANT TRAINING PROGRAM/NATP) - 76 HOURS

 

STNAs are in high demand! These employees may work in hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, or in a client's home, in addition to other medical environments.  They often work under the direction of registered nurses (RNs) or licensed practical nurses. 

 

STNAs perform such duties as: bathing patients, changing linens and gowns, helping with personal and bathroom needs, and assisting a patient with eating and drinking when needed. They also may help with transporting patients and gait instability, in addition to observing their overall well-being. Other duties may include taking, recording, and monitoring patient vital signs, and assisting nurses with wound cleaning and dressings.  STNAs are not permitted to dispense medication or perform medical procedures.  

 

Our next class will be held from April 3, 2019 to May 15, 2019, and will meet Tuesdays through Thursdays from 5 - 9 p.m.  Cost of tuition is $800, plus a $50 registration/testing fee.  Ohio State licensing testing is conducted on campus soon after the program is completed. Payment options may be available.  See below for prerequisites for this program.*

 

 

EKG TECHNICIAN (CET) - 72 HOURS 

 

EKG technicians work in hospital and clinical settings to provide direct patient care.  Often working in the Cardiology Department, they work alongside doctors and technicians to perform electrocardiogram (EKG) testing using EKG machines to record a patient's heart activity.  They monitor the machine and attach electrodes to a patient's chest, arms and legs, and then note the results of the test.  They may also ask about a patient's medical history, or assist a doctor or technician during certain medical procedures.  Students will be given the chance to become certified through the NHA (National Heathcareer Association) at the end of the class. 

 

The next EKG class is scheduled to begin on May 21, 2019 and conclude on June 27, 2019.  Classes will be held Tuesdays through Thursdays from 5 - 9 p.m.  Cost of tuition is $1,100, plus a $50 registration/testing fee.  Payment options may be available. Please see below for prerequisites for entry into this program.* 

 

 

EMT BASIC - (EMT CERTIFICATION) 150 HOURS

The next EKG Basic class is scheduled to start February 4, 2019 and end May 11, 2019.  Students meet Mondays and Wednesdays from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., plus every other Saturday between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.  tTesting to become certified in EMT Basic will be provided.
