Bridge to the Master of Science in Nursing for RNs with a Non-Nursing Baccalaureate Degree

This prerequisite sequence of courses is designed for RNs with a non- nursing baccalaureate degree who wish to enter the MSN program at The College of New Jersey. Up to 16 undergraduate credits are taken prior to MSN course content. In addition, students must meet all the requirements for admission to the MSN programs. The bridge option cannot be applied to the School Nurse program. Students must hold a BSN to enter the School Nurse program.

Owing to exceptionally high enrollment and retention, the Department of Nursing has no capacity for external transfer students seeking admission to the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program for the 2022-2023 academic year. This notice will be updated if capacity allows for applications to be submitted through the Office of Admissions for the 2023-2024 academic year.
