High school seniors can jump-start their career in the healthcare field by becoming an STNA through the Ottawa County STNA Program. The purpose of the program is to educate and expose Ottawa County students to the skills and continuing education needed to fill in-demand jobs in Ohio.

Ottawa County high school seniors will receive training all in the first semester of the school year. Students will learn the basics of anatomy, physiology, nutrition and get an understanding of how the body functions. They will understand how to use medical equipment such as blood pressure cuffs and gauges and learn basic medical terminology. The second semester of the school year, students are required to complete a 9-week internship with practical, hands-on experience.


Our Ottawa County employers want to help our students succeed and we encourage you to reach out to them for your 9-week internship. If you need assistance contacting one of the employers below, please email
