Nursing Fundamentals Student Internships

Pamlico County High School's 2017 Nursing Fundamentals students are making final preparations and practicing skills. Soon, they will begin their clinical internships in various long-term care and healthcare facilities. These students will perform direct patient/resident care and observe healthcare professionals during their clinical experiences; thus, gaining valuable knowledge and life skills. 

Prior to placement in a clinical internship, students are required to complete a rigorous training program established by the North Carolina Board of Nursing for Nursing Assistants.  Students are trained to perform a minimum of 81 skills including, but not limited to, professionalism, knowledge of medical law and ethics, and patient safety. 

Upon successful completion of the Nursing Fundamentals course, students are eligible to sit for the North Carolina Certified Nursing Aide I examination to become CNAI's. Obtaining the CNA credential better prepares health science education students for the expectations of post-secondary education opportunities and seeking employment following graduation.

Principal's Message

Dear students, staff, parents, community members, and friends,

It is with extreme pleasure and with great pride that I write to you about my expectations for our PCHS family. Our school is filled with students and staff who are intelligent, outgoing, and very positive. My goal is to continue to improve. I know, without a doubt, that we have the people in place to do great things. I want our students to separate themselves from the average student and shoot for more. We have many that are already doing great things and some that are trying. My goal is for every student to KNOW that they can do great things. I do not want my students to settle for average. They will know this and they will do great things because we believe in them. We strive to be a positive place where learning and teaching takes priority. We will make mistakes and there will be things that we can all do better, however, with the support of you and the hard work from our folks in the building, good things WILL happen. I want all of us to take pride in being a Hurricane and take pride in the fact that they are graduates from PCHS. To make these goals a reality, I have purposely made myself available. If you have a question, concern, or just need to talk, I am here for you. With communication, we can accomplish greatness. Thank you for all of your support, take care, and as always, GO CANES!
