Undergraduate Programs

The College of New Jersey, TCNJ, offers three Undergraduate Nursing Programs.

Our BSN program is the only Mercer County generic undergraduate program leading to the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree while focusing on health and wellness — in people, communities, and populations. Led by expert faculty, the program integrates a high-quality, specialized curriculum focused on evidence-based nursing practice, population health, and quality and safety initiatives with clinical experiences in a variety of acute care, specialty, and community settings.  Graduates of the nursing program are highly recruited by hospitals and other health facilities, and the majority have job offers in their senior year, while 100% of TCNJ Nursing graduates have been employed within six months of completing the program over the past years.

Our RN to BSN program is designed for working Professional Registered Nurses (RNs) who have earned an associate degree or diploma in nursing and want to continue their education with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree (BSN) program. TCNJ off-campus coursework places emphasis on helping to develop tomorrow’s leaders in the field of Nursing. This program will assist working professionals in developing skills as 21st-century adult learners and expand their awareness of current quality and safety issues in nursing. TCNJ prides itself on preparing graduates who aspire to take on positions of professional leadership or advanced practice nursing.

Our Accelerated Second-Degree Bachelor of Science in Nursing is designed for students who hold a non-nursing bachelor’s degree, have taken the necessary prerequisite courses, and are looking for an accelerated path to earning a BSN.

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
