This program prepares students for entry-level positions in nursing and for taking the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN). It has been approved by the New Jersey State Board of Nursing, the New Jersey Council of Presidents, and Accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing, Inc. (ACEN).
The standard duration of this Associate Degree program is four semesters (two years). Many students elect to take the science and general education courses required in the program before entry into the program. However, the four nursing courses must be taken in sequence and still require four semesters before graduation. Each nursing course may require Monday through Friday attendance.
