Traditional Bachelor’s and 2+2 Curriculum

Academics & Admissions

Our traditional, 4-year BS in Nursing program is for students who want to begin a nursing education right after high school.

This full-time program starts in the fall, and can be taken in Newark or New Brunswick, NJ. Newark and New Brunswick students enter as freshmen or transfers into the nursing program in the summer before their sophomore year.

We also have a 2 + 2 program situated on the Camden County College Campus in Blackwood, NJ.  Students complete their first two years of prerequisite courses at a prior institution (preferably Camden County College), at which point they may apply to the BSN program. Blackwood students enter as incoming transfer students with junior-level status through a unique and premier partnership with Camden County College.

To receive your bachelor’s degree, you must complete a total of 126 credits, including all of the liberal arts and nursing requirements in the traditional (or 2+2) curriculum. When you finish this program, you’ll be prepared to take your RN licensure exam (NCLEX) and begin your nursing career. School of Nursing students at the Newark and New Brunswick campuses who took the NCLEX for the first time in 2020 had a 97% pass rate.

We also have an honors program for high-achieving students that begins sophomore year and an Educational Opportunity Fund program.
