    Admission to the R.N.-B.S.N. program is restricted to nurses who are graduates of diploma or associate degree programs or out of country nurses who are eligible for R.N. licensure in the U.S.

    This program is designed for individuals who are New Jersey-licensed Registered Nurses or who are eligible to sit for the RN Licensure exam in New Jersey. The curriculum is organized around a systems-developmental-stress framework and is implemented as a community-based, community-focused model. Faculty members are committed to a student-centered learning environment to meet program outcomes, which include mastery of research, assessment, communication, leadership, critical thinking, integration of the liberal arts, and self-actualization.

    Student activities within the Department concentrate on projects related to health promotion in the community, through co-sponsorship of the New Jersey City University Health Fair, participation in the annual Nursing research forum, and by providing opportunities to students to work with faculty. Student involvement includes invited membership in the Kappa Eta Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau nursing honor society.
