“Helping the Community, Helping the World, Helping Yourself.”
There are many types of careers in the world that involve “helping.” Social Workers, Therapists, Educators, doctors, and missionaries are only a few, and, at the top of this list you’ll find nursing – one of the most satisfying, though challenging, careers to hold.
Nursing is considered one of the most ethical professions. In a 2006 Gallup poll, nursing, for the eighth consecutive year, topped the list of “occupations rated for their honesty and ethical standards, earning high marks from more than four in five Americans.” Perry County, where Judson College is located, is in an area of Alabama where poverty and lack of education run rampant, offering ample opportunities for nursing students and faculty to be able to strengthen the college’s partnership with local organizations and other higher education institutions in order to offer community health fairs, diabetes and hypertension support groups, and school screenings for children.
The 2-year RN program at Judson College consists of 72 credit hours and students will graduate with an Associate Degree. Because the college is still in the process of seeking accreditation from the National League of Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC) – a process that could take anywhere from 2-3 years, all students who graduate during or after the accreditation cycle will be recognized as graduates of an accredited nursing program. Emphasis in the Judson Nursing Program will include rural health, since the college has been involved in service projects in its rural setting for many years. The program is even more unique in that it is Christian-based, meaning the mission of the program is based on the principles of Christ.
What better place to begin your future in nursing – helping the community and serving the world – than a place known as America’s Christian College for Women?
