Career pathways span secondary and postsecondary education, align to employer needs and careers, and provide high-quality education, training, and support services for youth and adults.
In Delaware, career pathways begin in the public education system (K-12) through Career and Technical Education (CTE) pathways offered in charter, comprehensive, and technical school districts. These pathways continue through adult education, occupational training programs, and postsecondary programs that are administered by partnering state agencies, institutions of higher education, and other service providers.
This multi-skilled Patient Care Assistant Pathway Program will provide students with marketable job skills following completion in areas such as acute care hospitals, sub-acute care facilities, long-term care, outpatient laboratories, cardiac rehabilitation centers, and various other medical providers. The benefits of obtaining Patient Care Assistant Certification include more job opportunities, increased pay scale, and increased access to the program resources in the Allied Health Degree Programs. Students will have the opportunity to meet with degree program specific advisors at several points of their training to ensure a smooth transition from the Patient Care Assistant Pathway Program to one of the Allied Health degree programs upon successful completion of program entry requirements.
