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. Pre-requisite coursework must be completed before applying to the JCC nursing degree program and these courses may be taken at JCC.

JCC’s liberal arts and sciences - mathematics and science program prepares students to transfer and continue their studies leading to a variety of career options in mathematics, sciences, medical and health professions, architecture, and education. Graduates receive an Associate of Science (A.S.) degree.

JCC’s phlebotomy and pharmacy technician programs, facilitated through the College’s Continuing Education Division, will run this summer in June. The phlebotomy program is an 11-week, 90-hour training program that prepares students for entry level positions as phlebotomy technicians.
