Due to COVID-19 and the inability for students to access the testing sites, the Test for Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) is being waived as a requirement for the Spring 2021 admissions cycle in the Division of Health Sciences and the Division of Nursing.
The two-year Associate of Applied Science Degree in Nursing at NOVA prepares students for a successful career in nursing. The curriculum is designed to prepare selected students for eligibility to take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) and a future career as a registered nurse (RN) providing and coordinating care for patients in a variety of healthcare settings.
