Allied Health


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic the Allied Health Programs will offer virtual appointments for students' Q&A as an alternative to face-to-face contact. Allied Health students should contact their advisors by email to make a virtual appointment.  Face-to-face services will only be available for students that have a matter that cannot be resolved virtually.


Norfolk State University is funded through a $5million grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) to establish a Master of Health Informatics in the Department of Nursing and Allied Health. Norfolk State University was one of 10 higher education institutions nationwide to receive this funding. The grant aims to strengthen U.S. public health informatics and technology efforts and expand the nation's public health workforce. A consortium has been developed to assist with internships and job placement opportunities. The two consortium partners are Virginia Department of Health (VDH) and Hampton Roads Community Health Center (HRCHC).
