The Jefferson Difference
Jefferson (Philadelphia University +Thomas Jefferson University) offers unparalleled advantages to students who have the desire and aptitude to become successful nurses, and to nurses who are ready to explore their career potential for growth and advancement. We offer an exceptional continuum of fully accredited nursing degree programs, from baccalaureate through doctoral levels.
Jefferson College of Nursing is an integral part of a premier academic health center. Our partner in clinical care education, Thomas Jefferson University Hospital (TJUH), is one of the top-ranked hospitals in the nation and recognized by the American Nurses Credentialing Center as a Magnet® hospital for quality patient care, nursing excellence, and innovations in professional nursing practice.
Our faculty are outstanding clinicians and exemplary teachers, many of whom maintain a clinical practice at TJUH or elsewhere in Jefferson Health. Their commitment to the goals of the successful student is evident in our classroom and clinical settings. Equally important, our low student-to-faculty ratio fosters a nurturing environment where mentorship, shared learning, and camaraderie flourish.
Jefferson Nursing graduates enter the practice world with excellent clinical skills, real-world nursing experience, and confidence in their ability to work effectively with peers and team members.
