A strong academic foundation—and the support to help you succeed.

Our hands-on approach to healthcare education helps give you the opportunity to develop the critical thinking, ethical reasoning, leadership and interpersonal skills required to deliver compassionate care in today's sophisticated world of healthcare.

We build on a strong academic foundation with innovative and challenging learning environments—coupled with a variety of hands on learning opportunities to build the skills and confidence you’ll rely on in your chosen field.


West Coast University takes pride in giving students a quality education.  Our rigorous academic curricula are designed to help students achieve their career goals—on a schedule that facilitates efficient program completion.

We partner with students in their professional preparation, both during and after completion of their academic programs.

As we continue to grow as a university, so does our reach in the healthcare community.
