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 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.
