Learn more about the Health Science Division from Gina Riggs!

ACTE's Health Science Education (HSE) Division has a broad-based foundation of instructors, administrators, applied academics instructors, local and state supervisors, teacher educators and others who are dedicated to educating today's students for tomorrow's health care community. Many HSE educators have experience as health care professionals, and they prepare youth and adults for such careers as nursing, dental hygiene and dental assisting, home health aide and medical technician.

Members include health care educators from middle schools, high schools and secondary career centers, community colleges and other postsecondary technical schools, four-year baccalaureate degree programs, graduate degree programs and other related institutions and organizations. Most members also are advisors for HOSA--Future Health Professionals. Others join similar student associations.

Students preparing for health careers or for teaching careers in health occupations can gain valuable career information and network with other professionals as members of the ACTE HSE Division.

The ACTE Health Science Education Division is aligned with the following career clusters:

  • Education and Training
  • Health Science
  • Human Services

*Special announcement from the National Consortium for Health Science Assessment*

It's that time of year again where spring marks the season of assessments and the winding down of the school year.  Knowing that teachers and students are overwhelmed with fast approaching deadlines,  NCHSE is proud to announce that information on the health science assessment, from registering for the exam to accessing helpful resources to prepare, is just a click away from your fingertips!  The NCHSE assessment webpage has been updated with intuitive navigation for all your needs.  The webpage link is: http://www.healthscienceconsortium.org/assessment.php   On this page you will find  assessment resources which includes a 25 question sample test, test content outline, a direct link to Precision Exams and much more.  A section for FAQ (frequently asked questions) has been posted.  It is a NCHSE goal to provide useful tools for the health science teacher to ensure that health science programs thrive and grow.  Here's to happy testing!
