TAMPA, Fla., April 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Cardiovascular Sonography Program at Nova Southeastern University's (NSU) College of Health Care Sciences has received national accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (www.caahep.org) upon the recommendation of the Joint Review Committee on Education in Cardiovascular Technology (JRC-CVT). The new accreditation will be effective March 21, 2014 through March 31, 2019.

"This is a major milestone for our Cardiovascular Sonography Program and demonstrates Nova Southeastern University's commitment to providing the highest level of health care education to our students," said Stanley Wilson, P.T., Ed.D., CEAS, dean of NSU's College of Health Care Sciences.

"This accreditation will be instrumental in recruitment and advancing our efforts on behalf of the students," added Sam Yoders, M.H.S., R.V.T., director of NSU's Cardiovascular Sonography Program.

The Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP) is the largest programmatic accreditor in the health sciences field. In collaboration with its Committees on Accreditation, CAAHEP reviews and accredits more than 2,000 educational programs in 24 health science occupations. The CAAHEP is recognized by the Council for Higher Education (CHEA), and is also a member of the Association for Specialized & Professional Accreditors (ADPA.)

The Bachelor of Science in Cardiovascular Sonography degree program is designed to prepare students for entry-level positions in the field of cardiovascular sonography. Students take a series of online courses at the undergraduate level accompanied by on-campus lectures integrated with ultrasound labs to prepare them for a clinical externship during the second year.

Graduates of the NSU Tampa Cardiovascular Sonography Program are eligible to apply for both the adult echocardiography and the non-invasive vascular technology professional registry exams offered by the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ARDMS), and/or the corresponding credentials offered by Cardiovascular Credentialing International (CCI.)

Open house sessions for prospective students for the Cardiovascular Sonography Program will be held on Thursday, April 24 at noon and 6:30 p.m. at the Tampa Campus, located at 3632 Queen Palm Drive in Sabal Park. For more information on the open house contact Kimberly Shaw, (813) 574-5271.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
Organizations from small to large are increasingly adopting cloud solutions to deliver essential business services at a much lower cost. According to cyber security experts, the frequency and severity of cyber-attacks are on the rise, causing alarm to businesses and customers across a variety of industries. To defend against exploits like these, a company must adopt a comprehensive security defense strategy that is designed for their business. In 2015, organizations such as United Airlines, Sony...
The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.
