Consortium for Healthcare Education Online (CHEO)

CHEO's institutional partners will develop or transition identified allied healthcare courses and programs into hybrid and/or online formats. These programs—some of which will be new and others currently provided in the face-to-face format only—will offer students the opportunity to acquire stackable certificates, allowing them to make progress in their profession as working adults while pursuing academic credentials. Additionally, many of the courses in these programs lattice so that students can more easily change their area of focus to a different allied health program and be able to apply their prior learning. As appropriate, CHEO partners will develop new lab exercises using the North American Network of Science Labs Online (NANSLO) labs to provide their students with the opportunity to conduct science experiments online. The following certificate and degree credentials will be developed and awarded by members of the consortium: Polysomnography, Emergency Medical Services (EMT-basic, intermediate EMT and advanced EMT), Health Information Technology, Occupation Endorsement Certificate, Medical Office Support, Medical Lab Technology, Nurse Aide, Home Health Care, Hospice Care, Medication Aide, Health Care Core, Pre Nursing, Paramedicine, Radiation Technology, Medical Lab Technician, Practical Nursing, Nurse Aide Certificate Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and AAS.
