A health career programs information session provides an overview of pathways to a career in healthcare. Learn how our Foundations of Health (FOH) program prepares you for a wide range of careers or transfer opportunities in healthcare, such as earning certification as a nurse's aide (CNA), graduating with a Direct Care Worker or Community Health Worker certificate or a Foundations of Health degree.

If you're planning to apply to one of our selective or space-limited programs in nursing, radiologic technology, veterinary technician, medical assisting, and medical billing and coding, you will also have the opportunity to learn more about program requirements and admission processes.

Attendance at a program-specific information session is mandatory for students applying to nursing, radiologic technology, or to the veterinary technician program.
