Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2012

I felt the quality of education received was compatible with the quantity of knowledge obtained. In other words, the value-based learning concept at NSU helped me broaden my knowledge, skills, and abilities both professionally and personally. Competencies, methods, and business practices are real-life applications that are being utilized within the corporate environment in which I'm employed. The only suggestion, in my opinion, is the administration might consider hiring more professors in the business and management field. Communication between online students and a few professors need improvement.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2014

The pro in my graduate program is that the coursework and professors administering it are in line with the content I need for my education and licensure in my field. The con of my graduate program is that the cost is extremely high, and I wish I would have considered a state school rather than sticking it out with Nova after attending Nova for my undergraduate program. The cost of education is so expensive that the value often does not compare to the amount of time it takes to pay back any loans or aid, the difficulty in obtaining legitimate scholarships and the lack of assistance and support from campus administration in ensuring students can complete their programs financially!

The pros are the detailed classes with great information that will be very helpful to carry onto our careers. There are no cons that I can think of.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

"With great power comes great responsibility". Education is power because it translates to better opportunities in life. When I found out about my acceptance to a Master's of Health Sciences graduate program, I was instantly elated! The pros of this graduate program are the benefit of a fulfilling career, the state-of-the-art equipment for training, the outstanding faculty, and the prestige of becoming an Anesthesiologist Assistant. However, there are also a few "cons", or moreso obstacles. Because of its 27 month length, this graduate program is very advanced and quite difficult to keep up with. Tuition is nearly $90,000 which may also be viewed as a con. Nevertheless, I am grateful to have gained acceptance and have a positive outlook on my future as an AA!

Degree: Physician Assistant
Graduation Year: 2015

The program has outstanding faculty and has a very high first time passing rate for certification exams. The cons is that the school is expensive and is located in an expensive area.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2015

It is a wonderful, but expensive school. The law school at Nova Southeastern University provides me with an excellent understanding of the law and the professors are always available and helpful.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

The Human Resource Management M.S program allows students to take online and on-campus courses, whichever is more conducive to students schedules. The program also allows students to complete it within 18 months. The disadvantages to the Human Resource Management M.S program is that it is expensive.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

All the faculty and staff involved in this program are extremely enthusiastic and helpful. They go out of their way to get to know you and do everything they can to help you succeed. The school is devoted to staying up to date on the latest technology and we have state of the art machinery. The cost of living in South Florida is not cheap, but the area is great!

Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2013

I seriously looked at two programs when I was considering schools. Nova Southeastern had the superior program. I would highly recommend their Doctor of Health Science Program. It is excellent!

Degree: Educational Leadership

The Program at Nova is great for the working adult. It allows for accessibility and diversity while working. I have enjoyed meeting new people in my area and beyond.
