Interested in Becoming a Registered Nurse? JCC to hold Nursing Degree Information Session on Nov. 13

Jefferson Community College (JCC) will hold a nursing degree program information session for prospective students on Tuesday, November 13 at 4:00 p.m. in Room 6-218, Jules Center (Building 6). Information session topics include an overview of JCC’s daytime nursing program and weekend nursing program, pre-requisite coursework and admission requirements, the College application process and available financial aid. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about bachelors and advanced degree programs offered on campus by JCC’s Higher Education Center partner institutions. 

Graduates of Jefferson’s nursing program receive an associate in applied science degree (A.A.S.) in nursing and are eligible to sit for the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) to become a Registered Nurse. In the past four years, 90% or better of JCC graduates have passed the NCLEX on their first attempt ranking Jefferson among the top nursing schools in New York State. JCC’s nursing program is accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission.   

JCC’s weekday nursing program is typically of interest to full-time students while the Weekend Nursing Scholar Program is for students seeking part-time study. Both programs are two years in length. Applications for fall admission to the traditional weekday nursing program will be reviewed starting in February.

Space is limited and to ensure a spot in the JCC nursing program, applicants are encouraged to apply sooner rather than later. Pre-requisite coursework must be completed before applying to the JCC nursing degree program and courses may be taken at JCC.

Students who wish to enroll for the Spring 2013 semester are encouraged to contact the Admissions office, 315-786-2277, and the Financial Services office, 315-786-2355, as soon as possible to begin the application process.  Spring semester classes begin January 22 and course registration for new students begins on November 5, 2012.
