Nova Southeastern University considers student success central to the Mission, Vision, and Core Values of the institution. Among the ways NSU measures student success are the following: licensure examination passage rates, alumni employment status, and student learning outcomes.
Students in Nursing, Education, Law, Osteopathic Medicine, Psychology, Pharmacy, Dental Medicine, Health Care Sciences, Optometry, and Marriage and Family Therapy take licensure examinations. Each program sets their own targets for student success.
In the 2016 Alumni Survey, more than 70% of responding alumni were working in their major field of study; more than 10% were working in a field other than their major field.
Programmatic student learning outcomes are assessed on a regular basis; student success is determined by each individual academic program. Overall, 90% of the programs at NSU are meeting their goals for student success. For more information, please click here.
