Due to high demand, KPU is not currently accepting new students to Health Foundations. Please check for further details.


For Fall 2019 Registration, please note:

  • The Fall 2019 department permissions sections for HEAL 1100, 1150, 1180 and HSCI 1115 sections are now open for enrolment. Students can no longer request department permission access and should attempt enrolment in any open section

  • Beginning Fall 2019, Health Foundations students entering the Health Care Assistant program (HCAP) will be given credit for HCAP 1121 with the completion of HEAL 1100, and HCAP 1130 with the completion of HEAL 1150.

The Program

The Health Foundations (HF) program provides foundational health courses which will prepare students with the knowledge and skills necessary to enter the second year of a KPU nursing degree. Upon application to Health Foundations, students will indicate their intent to enter one of two streams: Pre-Nursing or Pre-Psychiatric Nursing. 

Through a competitive declaration process, students may continue through three years of the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) or Bachelor of Psychiatric Nursing (BPN) degree, or they may move to another faculty/program at KPU. Upon graduation, students receive a Certificate in Health Foundations.
