Joint Admissions BSN Program with HCCC, CHSON, and BMCSON

Print
  • Are you a prospective, current or past* student of:

    • Hudson County Community College (HCCC),
    • Bayonne Medical Center School of Nursing (BMCSON), or
    • Christ Hospital School of Nursing (CHSON)?

    NJCU is offering a Joint Admissions Program in partnership wtih HCCC, BMCSON, and CHSON.  This unique program allows students to earn credits toward their HCCC associate degree and their NJCU bachelor's degree at the same time, and make a seamless transfer to NJCU after graduating from HCCC. Students can transfer up to 70 credits toward their NJCU B.S.N. degree.

    *BMCSON / CHSON graduates must have received their degree no earlier than 2011 to be eligible for the program. 


    How the NJCU Joint Admissions B.S.N. Program Works

    As an associate degree candidate at HCCC, you may use the joint application to apply to the Christ Hospital School of Nursing and/or Bayonne Medical Center School of Nursing - as well as to NJCU's B.S.N. program.  Once you have been accepted to either School of Nursing, you will automatically be accepted into NJCU's B.S.N. program - there is no need for an application or transfer request.  Your enrollment at NJCU will be activated upon successful completion of your associate's degree and nursing diploma.  

    • Complete your general studies requirements at HCCC.
    • Complete core nursing courses at either Bayonne Medical Center or Christ Hospital.
    • Complete your B.S.N. requirements at NJCU.

    As part of this program, you will receive personalized academic and financial aid advising to help you design your four-year program across all institutions.  To get started, contact CHSON or BMCSON to receive your joint application materials.
