This profile is maintained by staff at the Medical Education Campus, Student Services Office at Northern Virginia Community College. We advise students on entry into our two-year associate's degree in nursing. We work closely with the application team which reviews all incoming applications to the nursing program.  

The best thing for a student to do is to review our application portal, www.nvcc.edu/medical/apply and take a look at the information session and requirements documents there.

    They are talking about applying directly to MASON nursing and skipping NOVA RN. If you go to NOVA RN and transfer to MASON you would be doing their RN to BSN program or MASON BSN CO-Enrollment. https://nursing.gmu.edu/academics/bachelor-science-nursi...
