TRACK RECORD DISCLOSURE FOR STUDENTS STARTING BETWEEN 9-1-2014 TO 8-31-2015
Joseph’s College Cosmetology has a policy whereby all students are required to complete the program and all graduation requirements within 150% of the published length of the program in order to be considered completed for purposes of outcomes assessments.

COMPENSATION
The latest information available addressing compensation for the Beauty industry was compiled through a survey performed by the National Accrediting Commission of Cosmetology Arts & Sciences.  The 2007 Job Demand Survey results indicate that salons in Nebraska plan to hire 1,547 new employees in the next twelve months.  The average annual salary for a salon professional in Nebraska is $34,354.  This amount does not include tips and gratuities.  Nationally, the average salon professional’s salary is $35,973.  If you would like to see a copy of the 2007 survey, please ask.

PHYSICAL DEMANDS OF THE PROFESSION
Cosmetology is a rewarding profession, both personally and financially.  The profession gives you the opportunity to meet and work with people in all walks of life.  A pleasing personality is a must for a successful stylist.  In most cases, professional stylists will find that several hours of their day is spent on their feet so a good soft pair of shoes is recommended.  Finger dexterity is also a requirement.

SAFETY REQUIREMENTS
Safety is a great concern for all professions; however, there are some areas that we need to be concerned with.  There are many implements that a student or stylist must be conscious of while using, sharp razors and shears, hot curling irons, blow dryers and other electrical equipment that could cause injury.  There are also chemicals that stylists will come in contact with; i.e., permanent wave solutions, hair coloring, hair relaxers and nail products.  Rubber gloves are supplied, plus information on all chemicals used is available through our Material Data Safety Sheets manual in each school location.

LICENSURE REQUIREMENTS-COSMETOLOGY
Upon completion of 2100 clock hours and the school requirements for graduation, a graduate must submit an application to the State of Nebraska, Cosmetology Department to take a licensure examination.  Effective July 19, 2018 the requirement for graduation will be 1800 clock hours.  A written practical and theory examination will be given each applicant.  The State of Nebraska Department of Health allows one testing format:

  1. Computer-based testing:  Upon receipt of the Department’s examination authorization letter, the student must schedule the test date/site with Laser Grade and also pay $50.00 directly to Laser Grade.

A Licensure fee of $95.00 is required. License renewal is on a biennium basis on even years during which time, eight hours of continuing education is required.  To obtain further licensing information or continuing education, contact:  State of Nebraska, Department of Health and Human Services, Regulation and Licensure-Credentialing Division, P.O.
