Undergraduate Programs

The College of New Jersey, TCNJ, offers two 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 6 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 associates degree or diploma in nursing and want to continue their education within a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree (BSN) program. TCNJ off-campus course work places emphasis on helping to develop tomorrow’s leaders in the field of Nursing. This program will assist working professionals in developing skills as a 21st century adult learner, as well as 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.

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
