The Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA) has granted Accreditation - Continued to the Nova Southeastern University Physician Assistant Program in Jacksonville, Florida sponsored by Nova Southeastern University. Continued accreditation is an accreditation status granted when a currently accredited program is in compliance with the ARC-PA Standards.

Continued accreditation remains in effect until the program closes or withdraws from the accreditation process or until accreditation is withdrawn for failure to comply with the Standards. The approximate date for the next comprehensive review of the program by the ARC-PA will be March 2015.

The Physician Assistant Program in Jacksonville offers educational excellence through the extensive experience of its faculty. The maximum enrollment of 45-60 admitted students for the Jacksonville program will allow for a very low student to faculty ratio.

Our program strives to produce competent graduates to provide primary health care, to increase accessibility of quality health care in the primary care setting, and to prepare graduates for life-long learning and leadership roles in promoting the physician assistant profession.
