The faculty and students of Nova Southeastern University's (NSU) Occupational Therapy program thank you for the opportunity to inform you about occupational therapy and how students are prepared with the knowledge, skills and value of lifelong learning to practice occupational therapy in customary and innovative ways within an ever-changing world.


Occupational therapy is a health profession created over 90 years ago to help people of all ages help themselves participate in meaningful activities (occupations), to take care of themselves, be productive, learn, play and interact with others to the best of their abilities. Therefore, the curriculum, classes, labs and internships are based on the belief that doing occupation is how people stay healthy, create their identity, participate in life and feel good about themselves.

  • practice in various settings with people across the lifespan, with or without a disability or illness.
