Hello Nova! Can anyone tell me what to expect throughout the 2+ year program?? Is the first year all books? The second year all clinical? What are the actual costs?? Books, tuition...Where are your clinicals held? Which hospitals? Please advise. Thanks!

From what I understand, the entire program (including tuition, living expenses, etc.) should cost around $80k. The second year is basically all clinical and some clinical work is done during the first year as well I believe. The hospitals I do not know, but I know there is a list of choices throughout the state.

The first year is a lot of classroom work mixed with clinical experience at hospitals near Nova.  The second year is mostly clinical with some online courses and classroom courses during the summer.  Depending on your lifestyle, the program would cost at least $80k but most likely more, especially if you have dependents. Your first year will most likely be clinical sites in the Ft. Lauderdale/Miami area.  During your second year, you have the opportunity to attend rotations throughout the US.  I believe they currently have the largest number of clinical sites available, including every clinical site that Emory offers.  The program is excellent and the professors/ professionals associated with the program, many of whom are very active in the AAAA community, have very impressive credentials.  In addition, if you're from the Tampa area, it may interest you that Nova will be opening a second program in the Tampa area in the next year or two.

Yes, I am in the Nova program now. It is definitely a definite, recently the new medical director for the Tampa program spoke at one of our guest lectures. As far as I know they are planning on taking their first class next year but I am not sure if it will be delayed. If I hear anymore information Ill post it on here.

thank you for the information about the Tampa program. I'm a respiratory therapist at present, but I'm weighing my options: AA school or nurisng, then CRNA. I tend to grab onto any information that I can to help me with my decisions.
 
CRNA programs are less of a hassle to get into and there are lots of schools. However a year to become a nurse then a year or two for experience to apply pushes the timetable.  AA is more difficult, more requirements/classes for me to take, and at present only 5 schools in the nation.
 
I would be a nontraditional student, so time is important to me. I want to maximize my efforts and time, with the biggest payoff. What's your take on that...or anyone else reading the thread?

What type of clinical sites does Nova offer in the West Coast? I'm applying this year and I'd like to see how close I can get to home (seattle). It seems like Kansas City or Denver would be the closest at this point? Do you have anyone in your class going further west than that? Thanks!

Does anyone have any information on the open house NOVA plans to have in October?  I have submitted all of my paperwork, how long does it take to get a confirmation and an offer for an interview, if granted?
