PHILADELPHIA, PA— Jefferson College of Nursing is pleased to announce that it has been recognized as an Apple Distinguished School for 2021–2024 for its use of digital technologies to transform teaching and learning. Apple Distinguished Schools are centers of innovation, leadership, and educational excellence, using Apple technology to connect students to the world, fuel creativity, deepen collaboration, and make learning personal.
“Our commitment to digital technology innovation in the academic and clinical settings has been rooted in the belief that nurses of the future must excel in highly technological environments. This honor represents the fruit of our work,” said Dean Marie Ann Marino. “The selection of Jefferson College of Nursing as an Apple Distinguished School highlights our success in creating an innovative and compelling learning environment that engages students and provides tangible evidence of academic achievement.”
