“I am very proud of our biology graduates,” said JSU biology department chair Greg Begonia. “Our graduates’ acceptance into the competitive accelerated nursing programs at these universities is a reflection of the high quality education and service that we provide to our students at JSU.”

  1. Either this university provide any online education for nursing.Nursing is the most stable job.So i have selected this.But its necessary that there should be some certified course because its very risky to care of other.So nurse should be certified nurse.please suggest me any best certified nursing course.

  2. Heartfelt congratulations to the four of you. Your success is very inspiring to other students and, I’m sure, to the faculty who worked with you along the way. News like this reminds me of why I work where I work.
