DEPCO Enterprises, LLC is proud to present a great way to teach the objectives for the National Health Science Standards established by the National Consortium for Health Science Education. View a PDF file of the National Health Science Standards.
Our Foundations course covers all 11 of the Foundation Standards totaling 120–150 hours of material and activities. The 11 standards include:
- Academic Foundations
- Employability Skills
- Legal Responsibilities
- Safety Practices
- Health Maintenance Practices
- Technical Skills
- Information Technology in Healthcare
Within each lesson, students complete an online study that teaches specific information about that unit’s accountability criteria. Most studies conclude with an assessment measuring the student’s comprehension of the subject matter.
Next, teachers use lesson plans and suggested activities, such as role-playing, projects, and group activities, from the Instructor’s Guide to reinforce the accountability criteria within the health care environment. Rubrics are included to assist teachers in assessing group and individual performances.
The Foundations course is available as a two-year program/site license. We regularly update the curriculum so it reflects current issues and maintains a fresh presentation in the classroom.
