HP 356 Ethics & Healthcare v. PHIL 201 Introduction to Ethics
Several of the CNHP programs will accept PHIL 201 Introduction to Ethics in place of HP 356 Ethics and Healthcare in a Pluralistic Society but many prefer HP 356 Ethics and Healthcare in a Pluralistic Society. 

Programs that will accept PHIL 201 in place of HP 356

  • Dental Hygiene
  • Food and Nutrition (all specialties)
  • Health Services (all specialties)
  • Nursing
  • Occupational Therapy Assistant
  • Respiratory Therapy

Radiologic Technology and Diagnostic Medical Sonography REQUIRE HP 356 and cannot accept PHIL 201 due to accreditation standards.
