The National Consortium on Health Science and Technology Education (NCHSTE) is comprised of representatives from the various segments of education, the health care industry, and several publishing companies. Representatives of these divergent constituencies are deeply concerned with education legislation that influences the preparation of future health care workers. Therefore, the organization supports the continuum of Technical Preparation as moved forward by the Carl Perkins legislation. Results are documented of a survey which attempted to identify existing Tech Prep programs’ level of participation, grade levels involved, measures of success, admission procedures, Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) involvement, and student acceptance into specific health care programs.
