C7 - Approve School Affiliation Agreement between CCSD and Orange Park Medical Center
Orange Park Medical Center is an outstanding business partner which provides opportunities for CTE Health Science students to conduct clinical rotations in their facility. This Affiliation Agreement is a renewal of an Agreement which has been in place for the past several years for training CTE students as Certified Nursing Assistants.
The Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) industry certification requires students to participate in clinical hours at a hospital to earn their CNA certification. OPMC allows CTE students to do these clinical hours at their hospital. Industry certifications prepare students for college and careers, provide bonus funding for CTE programs, and contribute to each school's grade.
Clay County's Health Science programs have partnered with OPMC and other healthcare institutions for clinicals, resulting in more than 100 CNA certifications during the 2017-2018, 2018-2019 school year.
Approval of this item will allow hands-on experiences like clinical rotations in healthcare facilities prepare students for college and careers. Additionally, an increase in CNA industry certifications is also expected.
