Bayfront Health Port Charlotte - Hospital-Based Program

The Hospital-Based Track of the Professional Nursing program educates and prepares students for entry level registered nursing positions in a variety of health care settings. The program consists of course work in nursing, science, general education, and clinical practice at select health care institutions. The Hospital-Based Track is an on-site Registered Nursing program through an affiliation between Bayfront Health and Jersey College.

Why Jersey College?

  • Hands-on training in a clinical environment
  • Learn the inner workings of a hospital from first-hand experience
  • Small class sizes
  • Earn an Associate of Science degree in Nursing (A.S.N.)
  • Prepare for the NCLEX

Our Partnership with Bayfront Health

Hospitals throughout the United States have recognized that new graduate nurses lack skills needed to succeed in the hospital environment, which in turn has led to high turnover. To assist with combating this concern, Jersey College partnered with Bayfront Health – Port Charlotte to establish a hybrid nursing program that seeks to incorporate the benefits of a diploma nursing program with traditional college-based education. This new paradigm is known as the Hospital-Based track of the Professional Nursing program at Jersey College. The goals of the Hospital-Based track are to:

  • Provide alternative pathways for individuals seeking to enter the nursing profession
  • Produce competent nurses prepared to enter the acute care setting and other healthcare environments
  • Complement and supplement graduate nursing residency programs established at hospitals
  • Offer students opportunities to learn about the inner workings of a hospital
  • Assimilate the nursing values and philosophies of our affiliated hospitals into the nursing curriculum
  • Expose students to patients and the healthcare environment early in the nursing program with an emphasis on patient bedside care
  • Establish a pipeline of nursing graduates for associated hospitals that have been orientated to their mission, goals and nursing philosophies
