Graduate Success Stories:

“The instructors are all amazing. They truly care about their student's success, always offering a helping hand.”

Margarita Capote, RN Program

Student Highlight: Margarita Capote, RN Program

"I chose Nursing as a career because of the desire I have to care for and help other people. Since I first made the decision to pursue a career in nursing, Jersey College has become my second home. I completed my LPN here and now I'm in the last semester of the RN program.

The instructors are all amazing. They truly care about their student's success, always offering a helping hand. The biggest obstacle I encountered during my enrollment here was balancing work, school and home. It hasn't been an easy journey by any means but I don't regret it for a moment. I thank Jersey College for the wonderful experience and look forward to furthering my education here."

 

New Careers Await Our Graduates—Hear What They Have to Say

“Jersey College not only provided hope and helped me reach my goals, but has also prepared me for my career by providing me with the experience and the knowledge I need to serve and advocate for my patients."

“I was twenty-two years old when I decided that I wanted to become a nurse. I’ve been surrounded by nurses for years. My grandmother, my mother, my aunt and my best friend are nurses. After expressing my goals and interest, they suggested that I looked into nursing. I remember searching for nursing programs near me and being faced with long two year waiting lists. The wait made me feel discouraged and I began to lose hope in meeting my goals to become a nurse. A couple years later my mother found out about Jersey College’s Professional Nursing program, where she enrolled and successfully graduated. The support that she received from the staff and the experience that she gained, made me feel confident enough to enroll in the Practical Nursing program. On my first day of clinical I fell in love with the profession. The new experience made me feel excited and I was eager to learn more. Throughout the program I learned so much about patient care and advocating for my patients.

My most memorable moment throughout the program was when I passed the Progression Exam on the first try. It was at the moment that I realize that I knew more than I thought I knew. There were so many resources throughout the program. There were Fridays designated for students that needed additional help. There’s a great student lounge, a spacious computer lab, and an outstanding simulation lab that allows students to practice and perfect their skills before being placed in a real life environment. My favorite student resource is the computer lab. I have the opportunity to explore the library online and complete my assignments.

The program wasn’t easy, but it was worth it. After completing the program I felt accomplished. I worked so hard, and my hard work did pay off. My determination contributed to my success. I refused to give up; there were many long nights of studying. Answering Prep U questions online were the most helpful study habits for me. My instructors made a major impact on my education. Ms.Wheeler made sure I understood the information, Mr.Dufresne challenged me, Mrs.Quinn was very patient with me and Mrs.Hill refused to let me give up.

I would recommend Jersey College to others because this college has a team of supporters that is compassionate and understanding. They are here for you and they are full of knowledge. My advice for future students is to ask questions. The staff is full of answers. Jersey College is surrounded with staff members that are knowledgeable and helpful; they are always more than willing to help. If you don’t understand a subject ask every instructor until you find an instructor that can explain it in a way that you will understand. Use your resources. The library has a variety of books with great explanations, the computer lab has internet and a printer that you can use to print out the power points, and there’s a student lounge that you can use to study with your classmates. Jersey College not only provided hope and helped me reach my goals, but has also prepared me for my career by providing me with the experience and the knowledge I need to serve and advocate for my patients.”

"Choosing Jersey College had such an impact on my learning experience, it absolutely changed my life."

“My decision to return to school and change careers made it very important for me to pick the right learning institution.  I was very anxious about entering the field of nursing with the academic demands it required. Choosing Jersey College had such an impact on my learning experience, it absolutely changed my life. 

The administration provided a nurturing environment that accommodated my academic and emotional well-being. The instructors are very interactive and care immensely about your success.  In spite of my anxiety about nursing math I completed the Practical Nursing program and passed my boards on the first attempt. 

Jersey College made it possible for me to continue on to the RN program in which I'm currently mid way through. I implore anyone seeking a nursing career to come look at this school. The clinical and academic skills they teach you will give you all you need to become a successful licensed nurse.  Thank you Jersey College!”

“The LPN to RN Bridge program was challenging academically but with the support from my instructors and faculty, I was able to keep moving forward through the terms."

Dear Jersey College,

I’d like to thank you for a positive Nursing School experience, along with preparing me for passing my boards and receiving my RN license. This journey began 15 months ago when I moved from California to Fort Lauderdale. The LPN to RN Bridge program was challenging academically but with the support from my instructors and faculty, I was able to keep moving forward through the terms. The relationships and closeness created with my fellow classmates helped to keep me focused and motivated throughout this journey. We formed study groups, put together study packets for midterms and finals and many times stayed late at school for review session. Being a successful nursing student means working with your classmates, instructors, and administration. When I felt like I couldn’t go any further, the test of success came when I continued on and didn’t give up. I came into this program determined on becoming an R.N. I am pleasantly surprised to have met and made friendships that will continue on in my life.

Thank You, My Jersey College Family
Tanya Paz, R.N.

“At Jersey College, you are more than just a student. They know you by name at Jersey College, they learn your habits, your strengths, your weaknesses, and they help you to discover who you are as you advance in your nursing career."

“I will keep it short and sweet for all those who are wondering how Jersey College, School of Nursing really is - from a student’s point of view. Well here is the down and dirty…. the staff, the foundation of Jersey College, has made me into the woman I am today. For me, a 15 month program turned into an almost 2 year adventure, because as we know; things happen. We don’t always succeed at things the first time around, and that is exactly what happened to me. I remember one day in particular, when we were receiving our final grades. I remember being one of the first to go into the office to receive my grades.  I was so ready to hear that I passed and I was able to move forward in the program. When I sat in that office, I received the news I did not succeed and would have to repeat the class. I was distraught and in shock to hear this news. I left the office, and attempted to pull myself together enough to walk out like everything was okay, until I heard one voice call out to me. It was my favorite teacher throughout this entire program, Ms. Fortin. She called out to me and I tried to ignore her, I did not want her to see me as I was, so I continued to walk away. She dropped all the paperwork she was working on and ran after me, at that moment I broke down crying. Ms. Fortin sat me down in the office and I continued to cry on her shoulder. She could have chosen to do a million other things at that point and time, but she chose to sit there with me and console me.  She tried to give me words of inspiration and told me it was going to be okay. That moment I will never forget.

 The teachers at Jersey College are more than Just teachers. They are shoulders to cry on, they are walking wisdom, and that’s what I tell everyone who asks me about Jersey College. I don’t just have instructors; I gained about 20 mothers and a couple dads. I was able to prove that I am capable of overcoming. I took my last class over again and passed it, and took my comprehensive exam and passed it on my first attempt.  I could not have done it without my cheerleaders, my support system, my school parents, my instructors at Jersey College.  If you can take away anything from this post, know that every school you will ever go to will have their politics. Every school you will go to will have something you won’t like. But I have to say at Jersey College, you are more than just a student. They know you by name at Jersey College, they learn your habits, your strengths, your weaknesses, and they help you to discover who you are as you advance in your nursing career. I have to say although my adventure was a long, and I mean LONG adventure. I am so very honored and glad I came here.

 To all my instructors who guided me through the ups and downs of nursing school, thank you for believing in me. You have shaped me into a more professional and confident nurse. I will never forget everything you have done for me, big and small. Part of the reason I worked so hard, was to make you all proud. Your inspiration has helped me achieve my goals and I am forever grateful."

“My words of encouragement to anyone considering becoming a nurse are: there will always be obstacles, but with hard work there are no limits."

“Nursing has been my passion for as long as I can remember. That being said, the best thing I have ever done was go to Jersey College to inquire about their nursing program. I signed up and started the following the week. For me, acceptance into the program was the easy part - surviving it was the most challenging. It was especially difficult while working two jobs to keep a roof over my head and support my family. Through it all, I learned that challenges make life interesting and overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.

Attending Jersey College showed me that being self-driven by the desire to care is a must, and challenges can be the norm. Many times I was discouraged and felt like giving up. Knowing that I really wanted to be a nurse gave me motivation and reminded me it was everything I wanted.

I passed my Progression exam at the end of the program on the first try. I then passed my boards shortly thereafter. I am now currently enrolled in the RN bridge program continuing my success. My words of encouragement to anyone considering becoming a nurse are: there will always be obstacles, but with hard work there are no limits. At the end no one is going to hand me success, I must go and get it for myself."

"I am a firm believer that everyone has a specific calling in life. For me I have always felt complete when I am helping other people. Nursing allows me to help others everyday especially when they are at their weakest moment.

Jersey College equipped me with the opportunity, knowledge and skills to prepare me to be the best nurse I can be. The staff is great and they are always willing to lend a helping hand. Although, it was not an easy road by any means, it is the best decision that I made for myself and family. I was able to complete the Practical Nursing program and pass the NCLEX on my first try. For this reason I will always be grateful for Jersey College!”

“I feel Jersey College more than prepared me for my career."

“I wanted to become a nurse for six years and after hearing many success stories from my peers and seeing the high NCLEX pass rate, I chose to attend Jersey College. I am now an LPN and have started my career, and I owe my success to Jersey College. I recommend this school to anyone who is interested in nursing. They will prepare you for many challenges you may face as a nurse.

 Some of my most memorable moments from being a student at Jersey College involve instructors. I remember when I was taking an exam and I was so nervous, I felt as if I could not breathe. My instructor, Ms. Jackie, was there to tell me to take a deep breath and gave me some words of encouragement and I felt so much better. Throughout all my semesters, the instructors always offered words of encouragement and always made me feel that they believed in me which helped me believe in myself. Every day at 6:00am, Ms. Molina would give a quote of power, knowledge, and inspiration and I made it a point to read these every day.

 There are many great student resources at the Campus. My favorite student resource is student services. They are always available when I need them and they know me by name. I also appreciate the knowledge staff in financial aid and their assistance with any questions I had, Ms. Mitchell is very knowledgeable and helpful.

 I feel Jersey College more than prepared me for my career. When I took my NCLEX for my nursing license, it felt easy to me and I passed on my first try. I love what they do at this school and plan to continue my journey here to become an RN."

"I feel the staff at Jersey College has helped mold me to become a greater version of myself and a greater nurse."

"After two years of being a LPN, I decided I wanted to return to school to further my education and advance in the Nursing field. After revealing to my grandmother that I was expecting my first child, she encouraged me to not let it stop me from accomplishing my goals. That day I decided that it was time. In August 2014, I started Jersey College with a 7 month old newborn and soon after a newlywed. This has been the most life changing experience for me.

I feel the staff at Jersey College has helped mold me to become a greater version of myself and a greater nurse. These last 15 months have allowed me to not only challenge myself but also build on a baseline knowledge I already possessed.

I am sharing all of this with you to let you know… it is challenging, it is intense, you will want to give up, BUT it is POSSIBLE, it is REWARDING, and YOU can do it because I did. I am now a Registered Nurse, I have accomplished what I set forth to do and so can you."

“Jersey College School of Nursing has changed my life and my gratitude pours out to each and every individual faculty member and instructor of this institution who have all paved the way for me to achieve my dream."

"I was no stranger to health care coming into Jersey College, but Nursing was unexplored territory for me. I was, however, aware of the academic demands of Nursing and though it was something I always wanted to pursue, I doubted my ability to do so successfully. Despite my lack of confidence, I soon found myself sitting in the middle of a classroom full of unfamiliar faces with a new sphygmomanometer and stethoscope in my hand. A sign on the classroom door read “PN Class – First Term”. That would mark the beginning of my journey in Jersey College.

With each passing term, I grew more confident in my abilities and gained a wealth of nursing and medical knowledge, thanks in no small part due to the brilliant faculty and staff at this amazing institution. The ability of each instructor to tap into the potential of each individual student is unmatched. Twelve months later, I donned my cap and gown and marched as a graduate and as a proud and confident male nurse, a stark contrast to the doubtful young man that sat in that First Term classroom just a year prior.

Jersey College School of Nursing has changed my life and my gratitude pours out to each and every individual faculty member and instructor of this institution who have all paved the way for me to achieve my dream. I am also proud to say that I will be returning to Jersey College in a month’s time to further my education and become an RN."

“The instructors at Jersey College are absolutely outstanding, they make it their mission to do everything in their power to pull out your very best potential."

"In the beginning when I made the decision to become a nurse, I only saw nursing as a means of providing for my family. My mother is a nurse and she tried to convince me to follow in her footsteps for years, but I just felt that it wasn’t for me. Until one day I was watching TV and I saw my first Jersey College commercial. Immediately, the commercial caught my attention and before I knew it, I was on the phone with a Jersey College Admissions Representative setting a date to tour the school. Once I visited the school I was completely sold.

Attending Jersey College was one of the BEST decisions I ever made! I recently went through the LPN program and it was such an amazing experience. Not only did I fall in love with this incredible profession, I learned a lot, and I made some really great friends, who became like family to me. The instructors at Jersey College are absolutely outstanding, they make it their mission to do everything in their power to pull out your very best potential. They do this by supporting you, encouraging you, and challenging you in every way possible. Attending Jersey College changed my life and I am extremely grateful that God afforded me the opportunity to be introduced to all these extraordinary people, staff, and instructors at this school.

When I made the decision to pursue my RN, it was definitely a no brainer that I would be going back to Jersey College. I am currently in my first term of the RN program and so far so good. So for all of you seeking to become a nurse and you’re not exactly sure where to begin your journey, I encourage you to come a give Jersey College a try. I promise you it will be a decision that you will not regret!"

“The school isn’t like your regular college where you’re just a number; you get to know everyone of your instructors as well as the Dean of students and the program chairs. All of them are completely dedicated to getting you through the program.”

"My experience at Jersey College of Nursing started as an LPN student. The medical field was completely foreign to me but I had always been interested in helping people. I had heard about the school from a friend who had just applied and encouraged me to check it out. Right from the start, when I had walked through the doors, I felt like I was at home. From the way the school welcomed you and helped you through the admissions process to graduation day. The school isn’t like your regular college where you’re just a number; you get to know everyone of your instructors as well as the Dean of students and the program chairs. All of them are completely dedicated to getting you through the program. Don’t get me wrong, you have to work to pass, but when you know that everyone is behind you, pushing you, cheering you on, it gives you the motivation to keep going even when you feel like you can’t read another page of your text book or take another test.

 After graduating the LPN program I decided to go further and earn my RN license as soon as possible. I could have applied for several schools that were closer to my home (I commute an hour each way daily) but I didn’t because Jersey College of Nursing isn’t like family, they are family. The instructors and staff make coming to school interesting and fun. I couldn’t imagine going anywhere else to get my education and training.

 The 15 months flew by and I have full confidence in myself and my abilities to be a nurse. I know I will make a great nurse and that’s because of this school and its awesome staff."
