Health Foundations

Due to high demand, KPU is not currently accepting new students to Health Foundations. Please check kpu.ca/admission/deadlines-fees for further details.


Please note: Department Permissions will not be applied on HEAL 1100, 1150, 1180 and HSCI 1115 sections in the Spring 2020 term. Students may register into these courses on and after their enrolment date provided seats are available and they meet any course prerequisites.

For Spring 2020 Registration, please note:

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.
