Nursing STEP-UP

The Nursing Summer Training and Enrichment Program (STEP-UP) will be a  hybrid model this year.

The program includes:

  • college application preparation including personal statement writing, resume development, and comprehensive SAT workshops delivered by a name-brand company
  • classroom and simulation experiences
  • time management and study skills training
  • student mentoring

The mandatory SAT prep class will take place virtually Monday through Thursday, and virtual or in-person enrichment activities will take place in the afternoons. There will be field trips and scheduled in-person simulation experiences at the Jefferson College of Nursing campuses.
