2 + 2 BS in Nursing

Our 2+2 BS in Nursing program is a unique program where students at Camden County College have the opportunity to complete a bachelor’s in nursing. Recognizing that traditional, four-year bachelor’s programs aren’t a good fit for everyone, this program is a partnership with Camden County College, which offers a pre-nursing track that prepares students to be successful in their admission to Rutgers School of Nursing. All services and supports available to students in our Traditional 4-Year program are part of the Blackwood experience.

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.
