Health Occupations

Regional High School Health Occupations Coordinator: Kathy Durling (541) 259-5816

The Regional High School Health Occupations (HSHO) Program provides coordination, support and oversight to local High Schools in Linn and Benton counties. It serves to expose students to a variety of health-related careers, and for some is the first step on a career pathway in a promising field.

The Regional Program holds meetings three times per year to conduct business, provide education, and allow for networking opportunities for the High School Health Occupations instructors and our various program partners. A resource nurse is assigned to each high school that does not have a nurse as the instructor. A number of resource kits and videos are available for check-out to instructors. 

Financial assistance is provided to develop worksite opportunities for students.
