RN Program Objectives

The Professional Nursing Program prepares students for a successful career as a Registered Nurse.

Jersey College has a holistic approach to the nursing education process. The nurse needs to understand the importance of addressing the physical, emotional, social, economic, and spiritual needs of the patient in an ever-changing, complex society. These principles provide the structure framework and foundation for the nursing curriculum. The primary building block for the Professional Nursing program is the Evidence-Based Practice Impact Model described by Brown (2009) for the Professional Nursing program.

Through a combination of rigorous coursework and relevant clinical experiences, nursing students will work toward gaining these competencies throughout the program:

  • Apply the Roy's Adaptation Model as a systematic problem solving approach to provide effective care to culturally diverse individuals, families, and groups
  • Modify care in consideration of the client's values, customs, culture, religion and/or beliefs
  • Communicate effectively using interpersonal skills and information technology
  • Utilize evidence-based nursing interventions to achieve optimal adaptation
  • Safely perform and prioritize appropriate nursing care skills
  • Employ critical thinking to safely and effectively provide nursing care
  • Accept responsibility and accountability for adhering to the standards of nursing practice as mandated by the nurse practice act
  • Be prepared to take the NCLEX-RN licensing examination
  • Utilize professional values and standards as a basis for ethical nursing practice
  • Implement strategies to enhance evidence-based practice to support change needed to improve the quality of health care practice
  • Demonstrate understanding of boundaries and the legal scope of professional practice as a registered nurse
