Respiratory Therapy - Program Information

Information Session

The first step to beginning health career training at NOVA's MEC is to attend a mandatory Information Session. Please note that the online information sessions contain program information for the current academic year only.

The Commission on Accreditation for Respiratory Care (CoARC) accredits respiratory therapy education programs in the United States. To achieve this end, it utilizes an ‘outcomes based’ process. Programmatic outcomes are performance indicators that reflect the extent to which the educational goals of the program are achieved and by which program effectiveness is documented. NOVA’s CoARC number is 200206."
