Traditional Bachelor’s 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, New Brunswick, or Blackwood, NJ. Newark and New Brunswick students enter as freshmen or transfers into the nursing program in the summer before their sophomore year. Blackwood students enter as transfers in the summer before their junior year through a 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 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 who took the NCLEX for the first time in 2019 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.
