NOVA is one of the few schools in the area that offers the Medical Lab Technology program. When I went to my first section, I liked the way the faculty explained the program -- it persuaded me to pick NOVA. Most of my professors have worked in the labs and bring real-world experience to the classroom, which is very beneficial.
There are also many opportunities here. I currently have a part-time student job through my program at INOVA Hospital. I enjoy the hands-on experience from my clinical rotations. NOVA is a great stepping-stone for me as I pursue my career in the medical field.
