NOVA-Loudoun offering new health courses this summer and fall

For the first time this summer, the Loudoun Campus of Northern Virginia Community College will offer two health courses for students who live or work near the campus. The courses fit into several Allied Health and Nursing programs.

“Introduction to Medical Terminology” (HLT 141) focuses on medical terminology for students interested in careers in the health professions. The one-credit class will be offered as a six-week course starting the week of May 16. Students may choose classes on Wednesdays from 1 to 3 p.m. or Thursdays from 10 a.m. to noon.

“General Pharmacology” (HLT 250) covers principles of drug actions and reactions, major drug classes, specific agent within each class, and routine mathematical calculations needed to determine desired dosages. The three-credit course starts May 17 and runs for 12 weeks on Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Registration is taking place now for NOVA’s summer semester and students must register by 11:59 p.m. on the day before a session begins. Students may register 24 hours a day online at www.nvcc.edu/startstrong or get personal help at the Loudoun Campus during regular business hours.

The health courses will be offered again by NOVA-Loudoun during the fall 2016 semester. Open registration for the fall semester begins May 2.
