Mission and Relationship to the College


The Healthcare Technician (HET) Discipline, located on the Moreno Valley Campus (MVC), within the Department of Health, Human, and Public Services, offers courses with minimal prerequisites and provides students with entry level and beginning skills in healthcare professions. Currently, no sections of HET courses are offered on the Riverside or Norco campuses. Some courses are offered at the Rubidoux Annex, with the MVC listed as the campus of record. Therefore, this HET Program Review will focus exclusively on the courses offered through the MVC Department of Health, Human, and Public Services..

Students in the Healthcare Technician courses may be beginning college students, re-entry students, or the first members of their family to attend college. The HET courses provide employable skills as well as a foundation for future healthcare educational programs. The portions of the mission statements most relevant to the HET Program are highlighted below in yellow. The HET Program reflects both the mission of the Riverside Community College District

The Riverside Community College District is accessible and comprehensive, committed to providing an affordable post-secondary education, including student services and community services, to a diverse student body. The District provides transfer programs paralleling the first two years of university offerings, pre-professional, career preparation, and occupational and technical programs leading to the associate of arts degree, the associate of science degree, and a variety of certificates. In the tradition of general education, the liberal arts and sciences and the occupational and technical programs and courses prepare students for intellectual and cultural awareness, critical and independent thought, and self-reliance. Consistent with its responsibility to assist those who can benefit from post-secondary education, the District provides pre-college, tutorial and supplemental instruction for under-prepared students. Through its three constituent colleges, Moreno Valley, Norco and Riverside City, the District works in partnership with other educational institutions, business, industry, and community groups to enhance the quality of life and the internal harmony of the communities it serves. The District serves Western Riverside County from three interrelated colleges in the cities of Riverside, Norco and Corona, and Moreno Valley.


and the Moreno Valley Campus

Responsive to the educational needs of its region, Moreno Valley College offers academic programs and student support services which include baccalaureate transfer, professional, pre-professional, and pre-collegiate curricula for all who can benefit from them. Life-long learning opportunities are provided, especially, in health and public service preparation.


The Moreno Valley Campus is the RCCD’s Health Sciences Campus. The HET courses attract students who are interested in exploring career options in healthcare and as well as students who have a specific educational goal (e.g., entering the nursing, physician assistant, or dental hygienist programs) in mind and are seeking related employment while they complete program prerequisites. Two courses provide career advancement opportunities for nurse assistants.


History


Healthcare Technician (HET) courses were first offered on the Moreno Valley Campus (MVC) in the academic year 1997—1998. The initial courses were developed in response to and in recognition of the evolving nature of state and national healthcare and public service industries. At the time, there were no full-time faculty members in the newly established Department of Health, Human and Public Services (HHPS), but the MVC Dean of Instruction, as Chair of HHPS, convened an advisory group of community partners from the healthcare industry who requested assistance in training workers for entry-level positions. These entry-level workers were envisioned as assisting the professional healthcare workers perform their duties. The healthcare technician courses (then designated HCT rather than the current HET) developed at that time reflected the college’s response to workforce development needs through innovative occupational courses. The initial courses approved by the RCCD Curriculum Committee on May 13, 1997, and the Board of Trustees on June 17, 1997, included:

HCT 80 Certified Nurse Assistant 5 units (54 hours lecture and 108 hours laboratory)

HCT 81 Certified Home Health Aide 2 units (28 hours lecture and 28 hours laboratory)

HCT 82 Phlebotomy Technician 2 units (18 hours lecture and 54 hours laboratory)

HCT 83 EKG/Monitor Techician 2 units (18 hours lecture and 54 hours laboratory)

HCT 84 Unit Secretary 3 units (36 hours lecture and 54 hours laboratory)

HCT 85 Sterile Processing and Distribution Technician 3 units (36 hrs lect and 54 hrs lab)

HCT 86 Patient Care Technician I 3 units (36 hours lecture and 54 hours laboratory).


The first of these courses, HCT 82 and HCT 83, were offered in Fall 1997 and initially enrolled 29 and 27 students respectively. In the Spring 1998, HCT 82 (31 students) was again offered, and HCT 80 (15 students) and HCT 84 (15 students) were offered for the first time. HCT 85 (15 students) was offered in Spring 1999. Of the originally approved courses, HCT 81 and HCT 86 were never offered.

The initial intention, suggested by the occupational advisory group, was to offer a Multi-skilled Healthcare Technician Certificate Program. The Certificate Pattern, while approved by the RCCD Curriculum Committee, was never approved by the California Community Colleges’ Chancellor’s Office, despite two attempts in 1997 and in 1999. In preparation for the second application, a number of the courses were revised to better reflect industry needs. After 1999, the idea of a multi-skilled healthcare technician was no longer an industry priority. The proposal for a certificate program was dropped, but the individual courses were retained as part of the RCCD Curriculum.

Since 1999, the HET courses have been offered in cooperation with the Workforce Development Programs (CalWORKS & New Visions). Sections were scheduled on the Riverside Campus and at the Economic Development Center on Spruce Street. Currently, the Workforce Preparation Office on the MVC refers students to the HET courses and works with students to facilitate their success by assisting them with childcare and transportation arrangements.

In response to the Healthcare Technician Program Advisory Committee’s requests, a number of new courses were added during the years 1999—2000. Some of the existing courses were revised in 2002, 2004, and 2005, again in response to the changing healthcare environment and changes in state regulations regarding required content and hours to be included in the curriculum. A complete list of currently approved courses that appear in the RCCD Catalog is provided as Appendix A.

Over the last few years, only five HET courses have consistently enrolled sufficient students; these courses will be discussed in greater depth in the Programs and Curriculum portion of this program review. Of currently offered courses, HET-79 (Introduction to Healthcare Careers) is the only course that does not have a clinical laboratory component. This course is open to all students, and is offered as part of the campus sections targeted for middle and early college high school students on the MVC and at the Rubidoux Annex. Two of the regularly scheduled courses, HET-80 (Certified Nurse Assistant Theory and Practices) and HET-82 (Phlebotomy Technician) are training programs approved by the California Department of Health Services. Students who complete these programs are eligible to sit for state certification examinations. The other two courses currently scheduled are designed as career advancement options for certified nurse assistants (CNAs): HET-86 (Acute Care Nurse Assistant) and HET-87 (Restorative Nursing Assistant).
