JCCC currently has four nursing programs fully accredited by the Kansas State Board of Nursing. The RN Program is also accredited by the *Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing, Inc.
Registered Nurse (RN)
Registered nurses assess patient health problems and needs, develop and implement nursing care plans and maintain medical records. They administer nursing care to ill, injured, convalescent or disabled patients. They may also advise patients on health maintenance and disease prevention or provide case management.
RN Refresher Academy
If you are a registered nurse who has not worked in the acute health care setting for several years, this course will help prepare you for employment in an acute care setting.
Practical Nurse (LPN)
A practical nurse is a vital member of the health care team, providing nursing care to selected patients under the supervision of a registered nurse or physician. The practical nurse uses technical knowledge and skills to meet the health needs of people in a variety of settings.
LPN to RN Transition
The LPN to RN bridge program provides those licensed practical nurses wanting to become registered nurses the opportunity to do so. Admission to the program is based on academic criteria.
