The nursing program at Rutgers' Camden College of Arts and Sciences is an upper-division program with all nursing courses given in the junior and senior years. This 120-credit program is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) and the New Jersey State Board of Nursing (NJSBN). Acceptance to the Camden College of Arts and Sciences does not constitute acceptance to the nursing major. The department has a clearly defined selection process that must be followed.
The nursing major begins in September of the junior year. Application to Rutgers University and Camden College of Arts and Sciences must be made before December 1 of the sophomore year. Interested candidates then obtain and submit a completed departmental application form in January of the sophomore year. The department's Scholastic Standing and Recruitment Committee is responsible for reviewing all candidates' records and transcripts and selecting students for acceptance into the major.
To be admitted in the junior year, a student must be matriculated in or accepted by Camden College of Arts and Sciences and must have completed 60 credits in prerequisite courses. A grade of C or better is required for each course, and a cumulative grade-point average of at least 2.5 is required. Acceptance into the program is dependent upon the student's overall academic record and on the number of openings available at the time of application. All acceptances are conditional, meaning that the student must complete all course work and maintain the required cumulative grade-point average prior to September.
The Department of Nursing welcomes registered nurses, second degree students, and others interested in pursuing a baccalaureate degree in nursing. Interested students must first apply to Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, Office of University Undergraduate Admissions, 65 Davidson Road, Piscataway, NJ 08854-8097. Upon admission as a transfer student, the individual is classified as prenursing (008) and referred to the Department of Nursing for advising.
