Health Science: Concepts and Applications provides students with the health science education they need as they begin exploring potential healthcare careers and practicing procedures they will execute on the job. The text covers the academic, professional, and soft skills students will need to succeed in a healthcare career.

Students also learn about the healthcare industry today, careers available in each of the five pathways of the Health Science Career Cluster, and strategies for finding and maintaining a job in healthcare. Hands-on healthcare procedures are included to introduce students to the basic practical skills they will use as healthcare professionals.
  • Real Life Scenarios enable students to apply their knowledge to practical, professional challenges.
  • Career Exploration features encourage students to explore various career paths and determine which healthcare careers interest them the most, while self-assessment opportunities guide students to careers that best suit their personal strengths.
