Arizona College of Nursing Wants to Open First Virginia School Near Inova Fairfax Hopsital

Phoenix-based Eduvision, Inc. is looking to expand the Arizona College of Nursing into Virginia with a location in the Fairview Park development.

Eduvision wants to turn the eighth floor of the office building at 3130 Fairview Park Drive into seven classrooms, according to plans submitted to Fairfax County. The office is a part of the Fairview Park development, which is located at the southeastern intersection of Arlington Blvd (Route 50) and I-495.

Eduvision owns and operates the Arizona College of Nursing, which has locations in Arizona, Nevada, Texas and Florida, according to Walsh Colucci. This would be the nursing school’s first Virginia location.

Lynne Strobel with Walsh Colucci highlighted in a letter to county planners that the nursing school would be very close to both Inova Fairfax Hospital, which is on the other side of I-495, and the Dunn Loring Metro station.

“[Inova Fairfax] Hospital offers a number of training opportunities and is a potential employer of the applicant’s graduates,” Strobel wrote. In September 2019, the county approved the hospital’s land-use plan as Inova looks to expand and provide more research and academic space at its Merrifield campus.

The Arizona College of Nursing at Fairview Park would have roughly 200 students on-site at any one time and 10 full-time faculty members at full enrollment. Once open, the school would offer classes year-round without summer breaks, according to the plans.

Eduvision is seeking approval from Fairfax County for a “college/university” use at the office building. Fairfax County’s website does not list public hearing dates for the proposal.

Strobel urged county planners to consider the application, saying that the proposed nursing school would fit in with the office building and the Fairview Park development.

“A diversification of the uses at Fairview Park will add to its vibrancy… The pond, open space, and trials in the office park are conducive to an educational setting,” Strobel wrote.
