“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."
