Tough, Rewarding, Encouraging, Fun, Interesting, Heart-Warming – I absolutely love Jefferson's Nursing program! Each and every professor has a true and visible passion for their career and teaching duty. It is apparent that they want to be here, helping their students, unlike many other schools and professors that seem to pass off a teaching position as &quot;just another job.&quot; The course load is heavy and requires a large amount of time to complete, however it is truly engaging and rewarding. This is the toughest grading scale I have ever been on, however I am making the best GPA I have ever made because of all the encouragement and interest.

Great, Helpful, and Intriguing Academic Arena – Jefferson College is small, however it ranks best for quality in my book of ratings. The professor to student ratio is great and every other department (financial aid, student service, library, etc.) is tremendously helpful as well. I love that the teachers honest to God seem to be there for the sole reason to help their fellow students. I have never felt more at home than I do at Jefferson College! After attending a community college, followed by VCU, I can happily say that I would choose Jefferson all over again if I had the chance.

Excellent, Easy-Going, Helpful, Encouraging – Jefferson offers health care focused degrees, and I think my peers would agree that if you are interested in the medical field, you can't help but attend a school that's primary focus is medicine! Healthcare is a passion for caring for others, it is not merely a job. I often find myself comparing course studies to real life situations, and am satisfied that I am already mentally preparing for those fast paced scenarios.
