JCC to hold Nursing Information Session on September 20

Jefferson Community College (JCC) will hold a nursing information session for prospective students on Wednesday, September 20, 2017 at 4:00 p.m. in Room 5-105, David G. Gregor Building. Attendees will learn about revised pre-requisite coursework, admission requirements, the College application process, financial aid, mentoring and tutoring services and more.

Jefferson is the only community college in the North Country to offer a nursing degree program in two formats – a traditional weekday format (ideal for recent high school graduates) and a weekend format (ideal for working adult students). With state-of-the-art nursing labs, students gain real-world experience at JCC. Increased nursing simulation lab time results in more practice time producing operative results. For the past 3 years, 100% of JCC graduates have passed the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) on their first attempt. RegisteredNursing.org ranks JCC’s nursing program #1 among all nursing degree programs analyzed in New York State!

Partnerships between Jefferson and Samaritan Medical Center and Upstate Medical University provide top-notch internships for JCC students. Graduates of JCC’s nursing program receive an associate in applied science (A.A.S.) degree and are eligible to sit for the NCLEX. Transfer agreements with Keuka College, SUNY Delhi, and Upstate Medical University provide JCC nursing graduates with seamless transitions for those who wish to continue their education.

Additionally, an articulation agreement with the Jefferson-Lewis BOCES practical nursing program recognizes the achievements of LPN graduates and confirms eligibility for admission to the JCC nursing program.

Accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing, JCC’s nursing degree program could be completed in two years. January 30 is the application deadline to apply for the “traditional weekday” option that begins each fall (August) and October 30 is the application deadline for the “weekend” option that begins each January.

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