WATERTOWN – Jefferson Community College will conduct a nursing degree program information session for prospective students at 4 p.m. Tuesday in the Jules Center.
Topics include an overview of prerequisite coursework and admission requirements, the college application process and available financial aid. Attendees will have an opportunity to learn about bachelor’s and advanced degree programs offered on campus by JCC’s Higher Education Center partner institutions.
Graduates of Jefferson Community College’s nursing program receive an associate in applied science degree in nursing. They also are eligible to sit for the National Council Licensure Examination to become a registered nurse.
In the past four years, 95 percent or better of JCC graduates have passed the NCLEX on their first attempt, ranking Jefferson Community College among the top nursing schools in New York state. JCC’s nursing program is accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission.
Jefferson Community College offers a traditional weekday nursing program and a weekend option. Both programs are two years long. Applications for fall admission to the traditional weekday nursing program will be reviewed starting in February.
Space is limited. To ensure a spot in the JCC nursing program, applicants are encouraged to apply sooner rather than later. Prerequisite coursework must be completed before applying to the JCC nursing degree program, and courses may be taken at JCC.
Students who wish to enroll for the spring semester are encouraged to contact the Admissions Office, 786-2277, and the Financial Services Office, 786-2355, as soon as possible to begin the application process. Spring semester classes begin Jan. 21, and course registration for new students has begun.
