Jefferson College of Nursing
Annual Report

A Year of Challenge and Innovation

Even before the global Covid-19 pandemic scrambled schedules and forced us to quickly adopt unprecedented ways of teaching, learning, and practicing nursing, Jefferson College of Nursing was aggressively establishing itself as an outstanding academic institution and a vital contributor to building a better Philadelphia area community.

As 2020 comes to a close, it’s a great time to celebrate all of the accomplishments Jefferson College of Nursing has made over the last year.
