Home Health Care Degree Gains Initial Approval
Gain skills in ministering to practical needs by taking part in the new Home Health Care program offered through The Telos Institute International! This program offers an associate of applied science degree in home health care, and it thereby equips students to work autonomously in any home care situation, including pediatrics, obstetrics, post-hospital recovery, and geriatric care.
The curriculum rests on a solid foundation of practical theology, coupled with a background in the physical and social sciences and basic foundations of health care. A staff of Christian physicians and professional nursing instructors is dedicated to helping students develop the necessary knowledge and skills.
The curriculum emphasizes personal character and professionalism and consists of distance learning as well as classroom instruction and clinical courses. It offers (from a wholeness perspective) training in Biblical ethics, assessment skills, critical thinking and decision-making skills, collaboration with other professionals, application of spiritual gifts, spiritual counseling, consumer health education and research, assistance in training of family caregivers, and how to support of families throughout the entire health spectrum.
Graduates of the two-year program will receive an associate of applied science degree in home health care and earn an Indiana nurse assistant certification. This certification is acceptable through reciprocity in most states. The program is not intended to lead to licensing as a registered nurse, but it would lay a solid, Biblical foundation for those clearly called to enter those programs of study.
Students desiring to enter the program will need to have demonstrated skills or competence in several critical areas to ensure success in the program. These should be acquired during the student’s junior high and high school years, and include:
- Math through Algebra 1
- Sciences: Life Sciences, Biology (including lab)
