Academics & Admissions

There’s more than one way to earn your Bachelor of Science in Nursing.
Which way is right for you? 

Traditional 4-year

Our traditional program is for prospective students beginning their nursing education right after high school. This full-time plan of study can be taken in Newark, New Brunswick, or our special 2 + 2 program in Blackwood. When you finish this program, you’ll be prepared to take your RN licensure exam. 

Second Degree

Our second-degree program is for applicants who already have a bachelor’s degree in something other than nursing. You will complete this program in 14 months of full-time study at our Newark or New Brunswick campus. 

RN to BS in Nursing

Our RN to BS program is for applicants who are already registered nurses (RNs) but do not have a bachelor’s degree in nursing — for example, you may have an associate’s degree or diploma from a nursing program. You can complete most of the academic work for this program online in four semesters.
