Public Notice of CCNE Accreditation Visit Invitation for Third-Party Comments
The Nursing Department of New Jersey City University will host a site visit from the Commission of Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) November 13th through 15th, 2017. CCNE is a nationally recognized accrediting agency for baccalaureate and graduate degree programs in nursing education. As a voluntary, self-regulatory process, CCNE accreditation supports and encourages continuing self-assessment, growth and improvement of collegiate professional nursing education programs.

CCNE policy requires New Jersey City University provide an opportunity for the program's identified communities of interest to share written input into the deliberations of the evaluation team. The Nursing Department invites faculty, students, alumni, practice and community partners and other constituents to provide comments to CCNE regarding its Graduate Nursing program as they relate to the accreditation standards. For additional details, please visit the commission's website. Written and signed comments will be accepted by CCNE until October 23, 2017. Please include the name, address, and telephone number of the person providing comments. These comments are shared with the team prior to the visit, but at no time during the review process are these comments shared with the program.

Please submit comments to CCNE at, or if you prefer, you may mail comments to:

You take your career seriously, and so do we. Just as you have a responsibility to your patients, we have a responsibility to the profession to educate and socialize nurses to serve their workplaces and their communities in the best way possible.

The NJCU Nursing Department serves the educational needs of current registered nurses or bachelor’s degree-holders looking to earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Our RN to BSN and 12-month Accelerated BSN programs are rooted in excellent teaching, personal attention and a sound curriculum. Both programs are offered at our Jersey City campus and our Wall location to accommodate the flexibility needs of our busy students.

NJCU also offers a part-time Master of Science in Nursing Education (MS) Degree Program as well as a Post-Master’s Certificate Program. Students can complete the 37-credit MS program in approximately two years, and may begin the program in either the spring or the fall. The program is designed to provide a solid foundation for nurses to transition to careers as nurse educators.

Our graduates develop leadership and critical thinking skills that make them assets to the profession. Whether you want to pursue graduate study, develop your expertise in a specialty area or assume a leadership position, the NJCU Nursing Department can help you get there. Our outstanding faculty members are experienced nurses and excellent teachers who create a supportive, interactive learning environment.

We understand that some of the most effective learning happens outside the classroom. That’s why we partner with numerous clinical sites that offer a range of experience.
