Each course of study provides a strong core curriculum, basic computer skills, life skills training, pre-clinical skills lab experience and an extensive clinical experience. The training received at JHA qualifies individuals to sit for national certification examinations, and upon successful completion, will allow them to apply for healthcare positions that offer greater earning potential. The initial employment position often serves the graduate of JHA as a springboard for pursuing further education and training for a career beyond the entry-level.
