What Our Students are Saying

“My favorite part of nursing school is the clinical component. Each patient has such a unique story and it is an honor to provide comfort and support to each patient and their family when they need it most. I also absolutely love our instructional and administrative staff. My class was approximately half way through the nursing program when the COVID-19 pandemic moved our classes online – and from the very beginning our instructors went out of their way to ensure our transition was as seamless as possible. Instructors consistently go above and beyond.”

Our Campuses:

  • Jefferson’s Dixon campus, located in Horsham, PA, is aligned with best practices in designing a future-focused academic space. At 42,000 square feet, nearly one third of the facility is dedicated to a state-of-the-art simulation center, where both undergraduate and graduate students will engage in complex clinical scenarios that parallel, anticipate and amplify real-life situations.
  • Our Center City campus is located in the heart of Philadelphia. The University shares this campus with Thomas Jefferson University Hospital and Jefferson Hospital for Neuroscience, giving it the distinct feel of an academic medical center. Center City is also home to the Rector Clinical Skills and Simulation Center (Rector CSSC), where students participate in activities with standardized patients and high-fidelity models in simulation that teaches and assesses clinical skills, including interprofessional opportunities. The Scott Memorial Library, situated in the middle of campus, offers access to knowledge-based resources, including books, e-books, articles, videos and journals, study space, computers and physical models.
