The development of skill standards for Health Science was a result of a collaborative effort involving the Nevada Department of Education and a writing team with extensive experience in both teaching and in the field. The skill standards presented in this report features a framework for students interested in pursuing careers in healthcare and support the STEM initiative in Nevada. Each program should provide students with the opportunity to explore a variety of careers and leadership opportunities through career and technical student organizations like Health Occupation Students of America (HOSA). The variety of content standards allows a program to customize the needs of their students, the community and their district to meet the needs of the heath care industry. The content and performance standards are driven by the National Health Care Foundation Standards and the Career Clusters Pathways for Health Science/Law and Public Safety. A student considered successful in the completion of all the performance indicators in Level 1 and 2 should be able to obtain a passing score on the National Health Science Assessment. The final section of this document shows the correlation of the standards to several academic standard areas. These standards do meet and exceed the requirements of the Nevada Life Science and Health Standards. Where correlation with an academic standard exists, students in a health science program perform learning activities that support, either directly or indirectly, achievement of one or more academic standards.
