Open New Doors for Yourself!
Come See What's New at SGU!
If you haven't already heard, Sinte Gleska University's Institute of Technologies, through their Allied Health program, is offering a new Home Health Technician Certificate!
Presently, as part of the Home Health Technician curriculum, SGU is registering students for the ALH 125 "Residential Home Cleaning" class, which is being offered during Summer Session II, June 29-July 24, 2015. The class will meet Monday-Thursday, 9-11 am. This class is a requirement to fulfill the Home Health Technician Certificate, and is only being offered this summer. It won't be offered in the Fall or Spring semesters. You have until June 26th to register.
What can you do with your Home Health Technician Certificate? You can provide services to home-bound or disabled individuals under the supervision of home care or social service agencies. Home Health Tech's can give meds, take vitals, give baths, clean and/or cook for their clients - in their home, community care facilities, hospitals, or at rehabilitation facilities.
Employment of Home Health Tech's are projected to grow by 50 percent between the years 2010 and 2018, which is much quicker than the average for all occupations. The expected growth is due to the projected rise in the number of elderly people, an age group that often has mounting health problems and that need assistance with daily activities. The elderly and other clients, such as the physically disabled, are increasingly relying on home care.
To get started on your Home Health Technician Certificate, which is a total of 30 credit hours and includes completing the CNA program, you will need a high school diploma/GED, and to register at the Registrar's Office at the SGU Student Services Building, Monday-Friday, 9am-4pm.
For more information, please call Michelle at the SGU~Allied Health office at (605) 856-8158 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.

President Lionel Bordeaux received a round of applause at the All-Staff meeting held on April 24th when he announced to Sinte Gleska University employees that they will be receiving a 7% pay increase and it's retroactive to October 1st, 2014, the beginning of the new fiscal year! Those not eligible for the pay increase are SGU work-study students and those employed by grants, however President Bordeaux said. "...but, were working on that."
Recently, the Sinte Gleska University~Allied Health office, under the SGU Institute of Technologies (I.O.T.) Department, purchased a van from funds received through the Department of Labor "Trade Adjustment Assistance Communiy College and Career Training (TAACCCT) Grant".
Students of the SGU Nursing, EMT, and Allied Health programs -all programs under the I.O.T. Dept.- will be able to use it for field trips to visit our Allied Health Training Consortium-sister colleges, which are Southeast Technical Institute, Lake Area Technical Institute, Mitchell Technical Institute, Western Dakota Technical Institute, and Oglala Community College, as well as for field trips to other key Healthcare industry partners, such as the Rapid City Regional Healthcare, Avera Medical Sanford, and local Healthcare entities such as the Indian Health Service, White River Healthcare Center, Pine View Good Samaritan Center, etc. All important trips for students to learn about the Healthcare industry, to meet and interact with others in the Healthcare industry, to learn new technologies, as our consortium-sister colleges all offer different healthcare training, and, to possibly get employed or trained by a Healthcare industry partner!
Here, Jim Poignee, Director of the SGU Institute of Technologies, get ready to take the van for its first cruise to test it out.
It was delivered by Billion Auto of Sioux Falls.
