JCN to Offer BSN Programs at Aria Campus in Trevose

02/06/17

Jefferson College of Nursing has received approval from the Pennsylvania State Board of Nursing to offer Bachelor of Science in Nursing programs in Trevose, Bucks County – at the Aria campus. The decision to move from a diploma program to a BSN-degree granting program, announced in July 2016, was the result of a thoughtful and deliberate process involving an integration team that included nursing and nursing education leaders from Aria-Jefferson Health and Jefferson Health.

Two prelicensure BSN programs will be offered at the Aria Campus starting:

FACT- 2 Year (Full-Time Accelerated Coursework Track)

A full-time day program completed over 18-months or two academic years. It is for individuals with a non-nursing bachelor’s degree. This program enrolls students with a bachelor’s degree and 26 specific credits prior to starting this track. Students are admitted to the BSN and MSN programs simultaneously.

Traditional Program

A program for individuals with no prior nursing education and no bachelor’s degree. It is offered as a full-time day program over 18-months or two academic years. This program enrolls students who have completed their first two years of pre-requisite courses (59 credits) at another institution.

We will be holding information sessions at JCN’s Aria campus for prospective students in the near future.
