3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Like I previously stated, when it gets to the last one or two years of your program the courses required for your degree are only available at one or two set times. This makes it difficult to have a job while in class here during the final stretch of your degree.

4 College Junior

Online Courses: Most of the Health Sciences courses are online only, but that doesn't take away from the education. Typically it's one or two assignments a week and two major projects per semester. Sometimes a class requires set times and dates to do class "Skype calls" of sorts using a program many students have trouble with through the blackboard site. They should seriously just use Skype instead of their current program.

5 College Junior

Career Services: If you graduate from Jefferson you are basically guaranteed a job at a Carilion facility before the end of your last semester.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The nursing program needs a lot of work, especially since it is the program they put the most focus on. After the second year there are only two options for times when it comes to required courses and the class sizes are always above 30 when previously it was under 15. They need to take a look at their most successful program and it just started a couple years ago. Surgical Technologies has a 100% pass rate with no more than 15 people per year in the program. Smaller class sizes and more focus on the students is what is needed for the nursing program to succeed.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: If you are looking for a college that will guarantee a job before graduation this is the place. Since it is owned by Carilion Hospitals, who owns many medical buildings in the area, Jefferson is basically a training ground for their future employees. Your clinicals are in Carilion facilities so you will be able to work in what will most likely be your future job environment.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: 100% pass rate in the Surg Tech program. Uses mock labs on campus with hands on learning. Health Sciences programs as well as Surg Tech features professors that are experts in their fields.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Main focus is nursing, but other programs are better.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Transferring classes was extremely easy. Class convenience is okay. Junior year is a set schedule and then senior year the days of the week switch, but remain constant throughout the year.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: I've only had to take the required classes online, and they are horrible and do not contribute to learning anything new.

3 College Junior

Career Services: I'm not sure about the alumni network, but job prospects are good. We have already received recruitment emails from hospitals across the country.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Class sizes are very small which makes the teacher to student ratio very appropriate. You actually get to know your professors and they get to know you.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: This is a healthcare based school, getting a job in the field is very easy.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: The program is very hard, but that is due to the material. However, one instructor is incredibly difficult with grading and assignments that they require.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Teachers are very knowledgeable. Staff at the school are very eager to assist in any way!

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: It'll help me get a job

3 College Freshman

Campus Resources: At Jefferson there is no athletic department but there is a softball and soccer team that plays recreationally. The libraries are amazing and have free coffee. There are also campus events in or near the dorm. I have gone on a 5k run, rock climbing and more.

3 College Freshman

Online Courses: At Jefferson I have had to take two online courses. They were pretty easy to manage and I got a lot done but sometimes my work would disappear offline when I had submitted it because I finished it really early. This was the only problem that I encountered with online classes. The teachers were helpful as well but they might take a little while to respond to emails.

4 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: When I first started at Jefferson I was able to transfer both my English 111 and 112 from the community college at my home town. Other students have done the same and advise doing so due to the clinical aspect of the different programs. I have been able to schedule my classes around my clinical days very easily and have had guidance from my academic advisor. I strongly recommend talking with an academic advisor frequently to help the process of classes and grades go smoothly.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: I am currently in the Emergency Services program at Jefferson. It is a mostly hands on program which challenges the students skills and knowledge in emergency medicine.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Jefferson is a college for individuals who are looking at becoming medical professionals. Most of the classes that a student will take will depend on their major. Their are also a few classes that are general education classes such as freshman seminar, anatomy and physiology, and English that most students will have together.

4 College Freshman

Career Services: Jefferson College of Health Sciences is a school that is designed to put it's students in the medical field right after graduation. The teachers help and work with the students to the best of their ability and they teach and help the students strive to achieve their goals. They also have a good work study system and a great staff that are always willing to help. Jefferson is a great college for individuals who are looking to enter the medical field.

2 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: There were no mention of internal scholarships that were offered at the school. It was all done with government loans.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: The workload is hard and heavy. Hours and hours of studying. Your life is now nothing but learning about being a nurse. The rewards are great. You have a job when you graduate. Also, you get to save lives in the process.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: It is the best nursing program in the Roanoke Valley. When you graduate for here you feel like you a prepared to be a great nurse, but also know that you still have a lot to learn.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: Has a great library. I go there a lot to study in peace and quite. Sometimes with a friend, sometimes just by myself.
