    Important Notice:

    BEGINNING JANUARY 2015 all nursing students require health insurance before beginning any clinical course.

    If you do not currently have health insurance you will need to obtain it to continue coursework involving a clinical experience. Proof of insurance will be required. Open enrollment in the healthcare marketplace is now underway. Please go to https://www.healthcare.gov/marketplace-deadlines/2015 to find an insurance plan that meets your needs.

     The Nursing Department at New Jersey City University offers you a choice of an R.N. to B.S.N. program, or a 12-month Accelerated B.S.N. program.  

    Established in 1976 as one of the first programs in New Jersey to solely service the Professional Registered Nurse returning for his or her Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.) Degree, NJCU Nursing has remained committed to serving this population in concord with the University’s mission of access and excellence. The quality of our program rests in a number of factors including a sound curriculum, personal attention to every student, and excellent teaching.  

    Our graduates have gone on to pursue graduate study, develop expertise in specialty areas, and assume nursing leadership positions in the surrounding NJCU community. Promoting a nursing philosophy that commits to student-centered learning, supporting diversity and cultural competence, and community service provides an excellent environment for nurturing professional growth and development. 

    The NJCU Nursing Department believes we have the responsibility of educating and socializing our students for the practice of professional clinical nursing, for leadership in the profession, and for providing service to the profession and the broader community. The response from current students and graduates alike affirm both program satisfaction and achievement of program goals.

    Cultural Paradigms in Nursing: Italy

    This section of NURS 466: Cultural Paradigms in Nursing is a travel study forum that provides an opportunity for nursing students to immerse in an alternate culture. To facilitate this travel study opportunity and meet course objectives, selected course meetings are planned prior to the travel study experience. Planned travel venues will explore differences and variations in the cultures of Italy. In addition to planned cultural travel venues, experiential learning opportunities seek to enhance knowledge regarding the Italian Health Care System and cultural perceptions of caring in health, illness, and health care delivery. These experiences potentially include the following: a.) Tours of Hospital facilities, b.) Visits to hospice organizations to engage in discovering the current hospice movement in Italy, and c.) Meetings with a University School of Nursing in Italy to discuss current nursing educational practices and cultural nursing practice values in Italy.
