In this unit, students will explore health careers as well as what it is like to be a nurse. Students will also learn about and be able to demonstrate how to take basic vital signs.

In addition to the CTE/STEM focus of the unit/project lessons, educators will find academic lessons in History that supplement the primary core area of study.

The structure of this unit and the materials contained within it were created by Jacqueline Kearns (CTE) and Kristie Banowetz (history) with support from the CTE Online curriculum leadership team and detailed coordination provided by the Course Specialist Sheri Coburn.
