NSU HPD Catalog 2020-2021

IV NSU Health Professions Division Resurgence of COVID-19 NSU is committed to both providing the highest quality education, as well as keeping safety at the forefront of every decision that the university makes. The 2020–2021 academic year will require a significant amount of flexibility that will enable the university to be prepared for any change in circumstances. In that regard, NSU is planning to use the BlendFlex model for the majority of its course offerings. This model simultaneously offers face-to-face and online delivery of instruction. NSU BlendFlex courses include a portion of the students attending in a traditional classroom setting, while the remaining students attend from a remote location using videoconferencing type technologies, including Zoom and Canvas. There may be certain programs that do not lend themselves to the BlendFlex model, including courses requiring experiential learning, such as those containing laboratory and clinical components. Students should consult directly with their programs for further information regarding their course delivery model. In the event of a resurgence of COVID-19, NSUmay take certain steps to protect the health and safety of the university community. These may include transitioning back to a fully online platform. In making this transition, NSU will continue to provide the same high-quality education that students receive face-to-face, while striving to limit disruption to student learning during this transition.
