  • The student-faculty ratio in clinical courses is typically 8 to 1, providing opportunities for close faculty mentorship.
  • TCNJ’s nursing program has a strong leadership focus, provides a solid liberal learning background, and is excellent preparation for advanced nursing study.

TCNJ is currently accepting applications for the RN-BSN program, but owing to exceptionally high enrollment and retention, the Department of Nursing has no capacity for external transfer students seeking admission to the undergraduate Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program for the 2023-2024 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
