Become an RN—Learn More Mar. 1

Jefferson Community College (JCC) will hold a nursing degree program information session for prospective students on Tuesday, March 1, 2011 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. The 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.

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 more of JCC graduates have passed the NCLEX on their first attempt, ranking Jefferson among the top nursing schools in New York State.

The traditional daytime nursing program begins in August 2011 with an application deadline of January 30, 2011. Late applications are accepted up to April 1, 2011. The next Weekend Nursing Scholar Program will begin in January 2012 with an application deadline of September 1, 2011.

Space is limited. 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. These courses can be taken at JCC. Spring semester 8-week courses begin March 21 and registration is ongoing. Summer courses will be offered beginning in June and July.

JCC’s nursing program is accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission.

To register for the information session or for more information, contact JCC’s admissions office at 315-786-2277 or email admissions@sunyjefferson.edu.
