Health Foundations


Please note: Applications to the Health Foundations Certificate will close November 20, 2020.

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 Health Foundations (HF) program provides foundational health courses which will prepare students with the knowledge and skills necessary to apply to a KPU nursing degree. 

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.
