I really enjoy that it's a small, private college. The class room size makes it much easier to learn and the professors are always eager to help. It's in a safe location and actively involved in the community. Being located in a hospital provides a number of learning benefits and provides us the opportunity to apply our knowledge.
Review Jefferson College of Health Sciences
The nursing program needs a lot of work, especially since it is the program they put the most focus on. After the second year there are only two options for times when it comes to required courses and the class sizes are always above 30 when previously it was under 15. They need to take a look at their most successful program and it just started a couple years ago. Surgical Technologies has a 100% pass rate with no more than 15 people per year in the program. Smaller class sizes and more focus on the students is what is needed for the nursing program to succeed.
Most of the Health Sciences courses are online only, but that doesn't take away from the education. Typically it's one or two assignments a week and two major projects per semester. Sometimes a class requires set times and dates to do class "Skype calls" of sorts using a program many students have trouble with through the blackboard site. They should seriously just use Skype instead of their current program.
