A hashtag in today’s world can be a powerful thing. It can bring a nation to its knees or lift a forgotten cause to the forefront of our minds. To us you are more than a hashtag. You are a complex individual with hopes and dreams. You want a good job and a comfortable life. You also care about other people and see yourself as not only a caretaker for your family, but to others in need.
Your future matters to us. At NOVA we have made it our mission to act as the vehicle for your success. NOVA has been there for you and your family for fifty years. Whether it be at the Medical Education Campus pursuing one of our Allied Health or Nursing degrees, or studying electrical engineering at Annandale NOVA has given you the tools to succeed
NOVA has not stood still. As the economy has evolved so have our programs and campuses. At the MEC we have added Occupational Therapy Assistant and Diagnostic Medical Sonography programs to our offerings.
Our MEC graduates are armed with degrees with starting salaries in the $50,000* range. On average an associate at NOVA cost around $15,000** with books and tuition. This means that the bulk of your cost is covered by the average financial aid package and scholarships. When compared to similar four year bachelor’s programs, it is easy to recognize that a degree from NOVA has a much higher rate of return. Especially considering the large loans that are often required to complete a bachelor’s degree that may have the same earning potential as an Allied Health or Nursing Degree.
We simply ask that you take a moment and review the information session for any of the programs you may be interested in. Send us an email at MECCounselor@nvcc.edu, or visit our office to discuss your options and the necessary steps to apply.
#YourFutureMatters to us.
