We're Changing Nursing – To Change The Future.

When your entire healthcare network has a culture of innovation and excellence, your nursing students learn to see the future as theirs to build.

Jefferson College of Nursing (JCN) has been creating nurses who lead and impact society in innovative ways for more than 130 years. Our award-winning faculty are exemplary teachers with decades of experience and a fondness for boundary-breaking ideas. What's more, Jefferson College of Nursing is an integral part of a premier academic health center, Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals (TJUH), that provides students with the unique opportunity to participate in clinical care education at an 18-hospital system that continues to top the list of hospitals in Pennsylvania (3rd) and the Philadelphia metro area (2nd) in U.S. News & World Report's annual listing.

Lessons from leaders. Taught by example.

Our award-winning faculty are outstanding clinicians and exemplary teachers, many of whom maintain a clinical practice at our top-tier academic health center and are leaders in the most prominent nursing associations and organizations. Their commitment to the goals of the successful student is evident in our classroom and clinical settings. We've integrated Apple technologies into all our classrooms and simulation rooms, so students can get firsthand experience with the clinical tech of tomorrow. Equally important, our low student-to-faculty ratio fosters a nurturing environment where mentorship, shared learning, and camaraderie flourish.

We Teach Boundary-Breaking Collaborative Care.

JCN teaches for the future, and that requires constant imagination and investment. We offer unparalleled advantages to students who have the desire and aptitude to become successful nurses, and to nurses who are ready to explore their career potential for growth and advancement. We offer an exceptional continuum of fully accredited nursing degree programs, from baccalaureate through doctoral levels.

You served your country. Now serve your community.

JCN recognizes the importance of a diverse student body in the education experience and welcomes students from all backgrounds. For this reason, we have a commitment to building a nursing education program that is also designed for veterans. Veterans are innovative, resilient, team-oriented, and comfortable in stressful situations. That's why veterans make incredible nurses. Jefferson College of Nursing has deep experience turning veterans into highly skilled nurses and facilitates the transformation of military skills into nursing acumen while addressing the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of veterans.

For Those Who Will Become Care Innovators.

Nursing students deserve a future-focused program that offers unique learning opportunities along with a renowned clinical network and deep community partnerships. Jefferson College of Nursing graduates enter the practice world with excellent clinical skills, real-world nursing experience, confidence in their ability to work effectively with peers and team members and go on to shape the future of nursing.
