About HPD

About NSU's Health Professions

Health care workers don’t practice in siloes and neither do NSU health professions students.

The mission of the Nova Southeastern University Health Professions Division (HPD) is to prepare future health practitioners to become health care leaders.

Our philosophy is to educate students not only about their field of study, but about the role of their field in the larger health care system. Through interprofessional education, research, and community outreach opportunities, NSU students learn to respect and appreciate how each member of the team contributes to the best outcomes for patients and overall public health.

Additionally, Florida and the nation are experiencing a major shortage of qualified health professionals, particularly in rural and underserved areas. By educating students in more health care fields than any other university in Florida, NSU is a leader in addressing this shortage.
