In the words of American physicist, Fritjof Capra, “The more complex the network is, the more complex its pattern of interconnections, the more resilient it will be” and nowhere is this idiom truer than in the College of Health Care Sciences (CHCS). With 10 distinct health care disciplines and 29 degree programs represented among its offerings, the college boasts one of the most multifaceted and diverse set of academics at Nova Southeastern University. The CHCS is strategically located at seven campuses including six regional, offering programs in disciplines such as Anesthesiologist Assistant, Athletic Training, Audiology, Cardiopulmonary Sciences, Exercise and Sport Science, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Physician Assistant, Sonography, and Speech-Language Pathology at campus locations in Ft. Lauderdale, Ft. Myers, Jacksonville, Kendall, Orlando, Palm Beach and Tampa.

The cutting-edge curricula offered in our programs help our students gain future success in their fields.
