Graduate nursing courses require access to a personal computer with word processing and presentation software, as well as internet access. A current version of Adobe Acrobat reader is also required. Microsoft Word, or ability to convert documents to Microsoft Word, is required for compatibility with College software. Computer facilities for nursing students and nursing computer software that is required or recommended by the faculty is available in the lower level of Loser Hall. Laboratory hours are posted on the door. Students may access the College computer network through any on-campus computer laboratory. Access to a personal computer at home, or in another off campus location, although not required, is highly recommended.
Email is the official communications method of the Department of Nursing and The College of New Jersey. All students must have a TCNJ email account and check their emails frequently while enrolled at the college.
Masters students have individual mail folders located in the hallway of the lower level of Loser Hall. It is hoped that individual student mail folders will facilitate communication among students and between students and faculty. Please use them as much as possible.
Opportunities for Student Representation
Graduate nursing students have opportunities for student representation to the Faculty Organization and on the following Department of Nursing Committees: Student Affairs Committee, and the Graduate Curriculum Committee. Students are encouraged to volunteer as student representatives by contacting the Coordinator of the Graduate Program. There are additional opportunities for student involvement at the Graduate School level.
