Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN)

Our Generic 4-Year BSN program admits post-high school students and transfer students (students with some college credits or with degrees in other disciplines).

  • State-of-the-art professional instruction emphasizes that nursing is centered on caring for people.
  • Professional nursing courses are taught by highly qualified faculty who are experienced and proficient in scientific foundations and clinical applications of nursing principles.
  • The curriculum is four academic years and includes liberal learning courses, courses in the natural and behavioral sciences, nursing science, and practice courses and reflects the emphasis on clinical nursing practice courses that begin in the sophomore year and become increasingly complex.
  • Opportunities to gain comprehensive clinical experience are available because of excellent relationships with area hospitals, mental health clinics, home health care agencies, schools, and senior citizen centers.
  • TCNJ’s nursing graduates are broadly prepared as advanced beginner practitioners of professional nursing practice and are qualified to take the National Council Licensing  Examination (NCLEX-RN) to become licensed Registered Professional Nurses
TCNJ's Department of Nursing is not accepting transfers into our four year traditional bachelor’s of science in nursing program at this time. We are accepting applications for the ABSN program for May 2025.Learn More
