Registered Nurse Program

The School's highly competitive RN program is one of the most respected coeducational diploma programs in New Jersey, enabling almost every student to get a job immediately after graduation. Students have the choice of completing the course of study in either two or three years, after which they are prepared to work as practitioners in acute, intermediate, long-term and ambulatory healthcare facilities.

Graduates of this educational program are eligible to seek licensure as registered nurses and function as practitioners within structured acute, intermediate, long term and ambulatory healthcare facilities. Their scope of practice centers on direct patient care and is defined by the roles of patient teacher, direct care provider, patient advocate, coordinator/manager of patient care and member within the nursing profession.

Through its collaborative agreement with Saint Peter's University in Jersey City, the School of Nursing offers students in the RN program the option of taking college credits, in addition to the basic curriculum, to earn an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree in Health Sciences from Saint Peter's University.
