Jackson State Community College




The Nursing Program prepares students to meet the educational requirements for the National Council Licensure Exam for Registered Nursing (NCLEX-RN), and to begin nursing practice in structured health care settings such as hospitals, clinics, home health, extended-care, and rehabilitation facilities. Nursing is a dynamic, applied discipline in which caring for the biological, psychological, socio-cultural, spiritual, and developmental needs of others is paramount. As a generalist, the graduate is prepared to function effectively as a provider and manager of care, utilizing assessment, analysis, planning, implementation, and evaluation of skills in the care of groups of persons. The graduate collaborates with other members of the health care team, functioning within the legal and ethical standards of the profession.
