Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Health Science is a year-long course where you begin your junior year of high school. You learn about hospital policies such as HIPPA, how to wash your hands properly, how to put on/take off gloves, making beds in a hospital, the anatomy of the body and other basic necessities you need for a career in the medical field. The following year you enroll into Health Science 2 for senior year, where you go out with the class to buy scrubs and you fill out paperwork and basically take all the skills you learned the previous year and preform them at clinical sites to help volunteer and gain more experience. You go to places like dentist offices, nursing homes and oncology hospitals.
Highlights of this course are the experience and training you learn in a great and interesting environment of a classroom with your friends. My teacher was the best, he was really funny and he helped me learn so much while not even feeling like it. Studying is a necessary thing in this course but it's nothing you as a student couldn't handle, I promise. I have learned so many things and being a senior the hands-on clinical sites are making my future brighter and brighter as I decide what I want to do.
