Is a Career in Nursing for You? Information Session Dec. 9

Jefferson Community College (JCC) will hold a nursing degree program information session for prospective students on Thursday, December 9, 2010 at 4:00 p.m. in Room 6-218 of the Jules Center (Building 6). Information session topics include an overview of JCC’s daytime and weekend nursing programs, pre-requisite coursework, admission requirements, the College’s 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 should apply sooner rather than later. Pre-requisite coursework must be completed before applying to the nursing degree program. Pre-requisite courses may be taken at JCC. Winter intersession classes run for 3 weeks on campus and online, beginning December 27. Spring semester courses begin January 24; summer courses will be offered beginning in June and July.

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