Health Careers students visit medical facilities

Visiting business and industry is a key part of the training at Caddo Kiowa Technology Center. Recently Health Careers students went to Lawton to visit McMahon Tomlinson Nursing Center and Comanche County Memorial Hospital.

“The hands-on nature of our training, along with experiencing first-hand what they will be doing on-the-job, gives health career students an edge,” said Bridgit Walker, instructor.

At CKTC, Health Careers students learn to work alongside health care professionals while providing quality patient care. Completers of the program have the opportunity to become a Certified Nurse Aide through the Oklahoma State Department of Health. Many continue their education into other medical fields such as nursing.
