  • Important Notice: 

    BEGINNING JANUARY 2015 all nursing students require health insurance before beginning any clinical course.

    If you do not currently have health insurance you will need to obtain it to continue coursework involving a clinical experience. Proof of insurance will be required. Open enrollment in the healthcare marketplace is now underway. Please go to https://www.healthcare.gov/glossary/open-enrollment-period/ to find an insurance plan that meets your needs. 

    The Nursing Department at New Jersey City University offers you a choice of an R.N. to B.S.N. program, or a 12-month Accelerated B.S.N. program.  

    Established in 1976 as one of the first programs in New Jersey to solely service the Professional Registered Nurse returning for his or her Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.) Degree, NJCU Nursing has remained committed to serving this population in concord with the University’s mission of access and excellence. The quality of our program rests in a number of factors including a sound curriculum, personal attention to every student, and excellent teaching.  

    Our graduates have gone on to pursue graduate study, develop expertise in specialty areas, and assume nursing leadership positions in the surrounding NJCU community. Promoting a nursing philosophy that commits to student-centered learning, supporting diversity and cultural competence, and community service provides an excellent environment for nurturing professional growth and development. 

    The NJCU Nursing Department believes we have the responsibility of educating and socializing our students for the practice of professional clinical nursing, for leadership in the profession, and for providing service to the profession and the broader community. The response from current students and graduates alike affirm both program satisfaction and achievement of program goals. 

    We welcome you to explore our website and to contact us for more information about NJCU Nursing. Our community of scholars and students are caring, diverse, energetic, knowledgeable and dedicated individuals who truly care about the profession of nursing and the public they serve. We look forward to welcoming you to NJCU nursing and having you join us in our efforts.
