Dean's Welcome

Dear Prospective Nursing Student:

I am very pleased that you are considering applying to the Nursing program at Northern Virginia Community College. Your first step is to review the Nursing Information Session and Nursing Program Information document. Be sure to carefully review the information document and the mandatory information session. 

Once you have reviewed these, if you still have questions, you may visit one of the NOVA Students Service Centers to meet with an admissions counselor. An admissions counselor can explain the program options and provide the best guidance regarding program pre-requisites, transfer credits, and the admissions process. Our Student Service Centers will see you on a walk-in basis.

I wish you the best in your academic  endeavors. 


Dr. Marsha Atkins
Dean of Nursing
