WATERTOWN – Jefferson Community College will hold a nursing degree program information session for prospective students at 4 p.m. Oct. 5 in Room 6-218, Jules Center (Building 6).
Information session topics include an overview of JCC’s daytime nursing program and weekend nursing program, prerequisite 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 long.
Graduates of Jefferson’s nursing program receive an associate in applied science degree in nursing and are eligible to sit for the National Council Licensure Examination to become a registered nurse. In the past four years, 90 percent or better 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 will begin in August 2011, with an application deadline of Jan. 30. Late applications will be accepted until April 1. The next Weekend Nursing Scholar Program will begin in January 2012 with an application deadline of Sept. 1.
Space is limited. To ensure a spot in the JCC nursing program, applicants are encouraged to apply sooner than later. Prerequisite coursework must be completed before applying to the nursing degree program, and courses may be taken at JCC.
Late session, eight-week, online courses and evening courses held on campus run Oct. 25 through Dec. 15. Spring semester courses begin Jan. 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.
