TCNJ to launch accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing program

The College of New Jersey’s School of Nursing and Health Sciences on Friday announced it will launch an accelerated second-degree Bachelor of Science in Nursing program in May.

The program will allow students who hold a non-nursing bachelor’s degree to earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree in 14 months, provided they have taken the necessary prerequisite courses.

“This fast-paced program focuses on innovative learning and hands-on practical experience,” Vicki Brzoza, coordinator of the program, said. “High-fidelity manikins afford students the opportunities to participate in real-life experiences in a state-of-the-art simulation center, and clinical rotations are done in Magnet-designated acute care and community-based organizations.”

The program offers small class sizes, community-engaged learning and faculty-mentored opportunities for research. The program also equips students to take the NCLEX-RN nursing licensing exam. TCNJ’s 2022 pass rate for first-time test-takers was 97%, and the college’s five-year average of 94% is 10% higher than the national average, according to the National Council of State Boards of Nursing.

TCNJ’s nursing program also has a stellar track record of post-graduate employment. In fact, 100% of recent graduates who sought full-time employment found jobs within six months of graduation.
