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.
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:
Request admissions information and get everything you need to apply to Jersey College, including course descriptions, schedules, and financial aid information.
The Practical and Professional nursing programs have resumed modified in-person learning at all campuses in accordance with the College's Restart Plan. While certain courses may continue to utilize online learning platforms, students should expect to attend certain or all coursework in-person, on-campus. For more information, please speak with an admissions representative at your local campus.
The Jersey College campus at Bayfront Health Port Charlotte offers a Hospital-Based Track of our RN program.
