The integration of academics and occupational education is a concept supported by the business community, vocational educators and state and federal policy makers. The 1990 Carl Perkins Amendments required federal moneys to be spent on progmms that integrate academic and vocational education course sequencing, so that students achieve both academic and occupational competencies (Section 235). This study analyzed the process and product of courses developed within a secondary Health Professions Center magnet program in Indiana against the elements of success as outlined by Statz and Gmbb (1991) and Pritz (1989).
