Due to the clinical nature of Jefferson College of Health Sciences, health records are a vital part of student success.

Failure to complete and turn in health records prior to deadlines will result in the inability to register for classes and/or attend clinical rotations.  All questions concerning health records should be directed to Tracy Jones at (540) 985-8501 or tljones1@jchs.edu.

Here are more resources to help you complete the packets:


A number of CPR course opportunities have been arranged specifically for the Jefferson College students over each semester. All classes will be held at 933 S. Jefferson (Carilion Life Support Institute) and be scheduled 6 - 10:30 p.m. To register for a course, call Carilion Direct at (540) 266-6000. They will need to let the operator know they are a Jefferson College student. There are only 18 spaces available per date, so register EARLY. This class is FREE for students, but the book is still required to complete the course. Once you register, you will receive an email with details on different ways to obtain a book for the class.

Fall 2018 classes are still being determined.

An additional option is being offered in fall 2018. Students may register for IDS 112. There are two (2) sections, lasting one (1) day each.  Students will obtain BLS and First Aid certification as a component of this one (1) credit course.

If you have any questions or any problems registering for the class, please contact the Emergency Services Program Director, JC Cook via phone at or via email at jccook@jchs.edu.

  • Past Students from 2011 – 2016: Your records are on a 7-year retention schedule, so as long as it has been less than 7 years since you last attended Jefferson, we have your records.
