The Registered Nurse (RN) student is considered an "Advanced Placement Student" by virtue of prior education, experience, and graduation from a National League for Nursing-accredited professional nursing program. It is possible for advanced placement students who have met all of the prenursing requirements to finish the upper-division nursing program in one year as a full-time student. Alternately, students may progress through the program on a part-time basis.
A maximum of 64 credits from a two-year college may be applied towards the Rutgers nursing baccalaureate degree. The RN who has passed the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) will be granted 23 nursing challenge credits (in lieu of Nursing II and III and Psych nursing) in addition to the 64 transfer credits. The student's last 30 credits must be taken at Rutgers.
Admission to the nursing program requires a current New Jersey registered nurse license and acceptance by Rutgers University, Camden College of Arts and Sciences. Visit the Office of Admissions or their website http://admissions.rutgers.edu for more information.
