The NJCU Nursing Department offers two separate programs for students to achieve their Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N):
New Jersey City University offers an upper-division program leading to a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.) degree and is limited to Registered Nurses. The R.N.-B.S.N. program may be completed as a full- or part-time student. Admission to the R.N.-B.S.N. program is restricted to nurses who are graduates of diploma or associate degree programs or out of country nurses who are eligible for R.N. licensure in the U.S.
All students are required to obtain a current Registered Nurse license in the State of New Jersey prior to taking their clinical course – Nursing Process and Health Promotion Groups/Community Theory and Laboratory (NURS 451 + 452).
Please visit the R.N. - B.S.N. page to learn more about the curriculum and admissions process.
The Accelerated B.S.N. is a full-time, 12-month, 64-credit program for individuals who hold a bachelor’s degree in any field and have completed the prerequisite courses. The program is offered in two NJCU locations, the Jersey City campus and the Wall Township, NJ campus. The program is very competitive, accepting roughly 70-80 students per year. Upon successful completion of the program, graduates will receive a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.) degree and will be eligible to sit for the Registered Nurse licensing exam (NCLEX-RN).
