Realizing Potential

Nova Southeastern University (NSU) College of Pharmacy (COP) admitted its first class in 1987, becoming the first college of pharmacy in south Florida. In fall 2000, the college opened a West Palm Beach program at I-95 and PGA Boulevard. In fall 2001, it opened a full-time program on the campus of Pontifical Catholic University in Ponce, Puerto Rico. The regional campuses are now located in Palm Beach, and San Juan, Puerto Rico.

The only distinction between the Fort Lauderdale/Davie campus-based degree program and the distance programs is geography. Each location has a team of site coordinators, including its own administration, faculty and staff. Interactive technology and videoconferencing are used to provide lectures and active learning between campuses simultaneously regardless of physical location. Identical handouts, texts, and assessments are used. Communication is available through multiple media resources including, but not limited to, telephone, email, texting, on line classroom technology, etc.  All students have access to the Health Professions Division library, computer Labs, online learning resources, and the vast technological innovations provided by NSU, which has been a leader in distance education programming for many years.

In an effort to meet the growing demands of the pharmacy profession, NSU COP outlined a curriculum for international pharmacy graduates that leads to the Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) degree. In 2002, the college matriculated its first group of international pharmacy graduates into the Pharm.D. degree program on the Fort Lauderdale/Davie campus.
