It's a blessing to attend one of Florida's top private schools. This school gives their students all the resources possible to acheive beyond their capacity. I've always said that if you don't make it at Nova, it's because you didn't put in the effort. The staff all across really care for their students. Professors are all easy going, professional, helpful and approachable. There's no such thing as assistant professors at this institution. You have real professors that practice what they teach for a living. Nova is hands down the best school ever!

I went to Nova University with my Health Science class. It was honestly the best experience I've had at a university. I was left with my jaw-dropped. I wanted to stay and never leave. I wouldn't change anything about the school because the students were very helpful and answered all my questions. The materials they used were amazing, they had dummies ("patients") who actually breathed and could give labor!
My experience here begins with my beloved husband who got his master's here. His experience was so positive it inspired me, a 33 year old mother of three babies to resume my studies to secure a brighter future for my family. Juggling kids, home, and life, I was not only admitted to their school of Communications Science and Disorders but granted the Dean's scholarship. An unfortunate event caused me to miss the registration deadline, but through a simple appeal process they were sensitive enough to understand and allowed me an extension. My experience so far has been superb and exceeded expectations. As an online student so I can only rate its virtual amenities and resources. They are exceptional! It has been 10 years since I last attended college and technology has progressed by miles but I have had absolutely no troubles. Every service is readily available, easy to find or just a phone call and wait time of 3 seconds away from courteous, helpful staff.
