- Study close to home at our campus in Ramsey and Hackensack
- You may be able to graduate in less time than you think, depending on previous credits and experience
If you’re interested in starting on a nursing career path or you’re an LPN or RN looking to advance your career, you should know that an important credential is an education. As a successful nurse, the stronger your educational background, the faster you’re able to move up the professional ladder. Having a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, BSN, is key to obtaining more career and salary opportunities.
Professional nursing education is grounded in science, mathematics, and the humanities. Your courses will focus on these subjects, which are the foundation for any nursing practice. Throughout the program, you will use critical thinking and data analysis skills to provide person and family-centered outcome-based care for individuals with complex healthcare needs across the lifespan and health-illness continuum. After completing the program, you will be eligible to take the NCLEX-RN examination to be licensed as a registered professional nurse (RN).
As a student in the BSN program, you’ll study in a fully equipped hospital laboratory setting, including high-tech patient simulators that feature sophisticated vital signs such as respirations and pulse. You will also gain hands-on experience during clinical rotations at local hospitals, included as part of your schedule. Current licensed Registered Nurses will have a shortened and direct path to obtaining a BSN.
