The purpose was to determine interest in a secondary health careers program and in a health career by tenth and eleventh grade students in Nebraksa. Relationships between interest and sex, grade, and grade average were examined. Interest in a health career was expressed by 20% (1,326) of the 6,640 respondents and 2,375 indicated they would enroll in a health careers program if it were available. Attitudes reflecting sex stereotyping of careers were prevalent among sophomore and junior students and to a significantly higher degree among males than among females.
