RN to BSN Program Details
Whether undertaken on-campus, off-campus, or online, our R.N. to B.S.N. program is the choice of many registered nurses who feel it is time to add a B.S.N. degree to their substantial patient care expertise.
Designed to meet the needs of working nurses, who often need to balance a number of existing commitments, our program gives nurses the choice of taking courses on-campus (at sites across the state) or online in the comfort of their own home.
Students electing to study off-campus take classes at one of four convenient locations throughout the state.
Camden County College, Blackwood
Community Medical Center, Toms River
Medical Center of Ocean County, Brick
Somerset Medical Center, Somerset
Classes are usually run once per week in the afternoons. Courses offered are determined by the academic director depending on the interests and learning priorities of the class at each location
This program is an ideal choice for those who live or work near one of the above locations and who value the chance to learn in-person with fellow R.N.'s.

MSN Program Details
Designed to prepare nurses to become adult nurse practitioners, this 46-credit seven-semester program provides students with in-depth knowledge of the aging process and helps them develop the clinical skills necessary to address the specific health needs of older clients.
Our nurse practitioner graduates not only become expert health care providers but also develop the leadership ability to operate effectively in today’s multidisciplinary health care environment.
Combining internet-based learning for the academic portions of the program alongside clinical practice components arranged at convenient locations, the M.S.N. Nurse Practitioner will appeal to ambitious working nurses who may be managing a number of work and home priorities.
Accelerated BSN Program Details
Designed for aspiring nurses who already hold a baccalaureate degree in a non-nursing major, the accelerated program allows students to graduate with a B.S.N. in just 14 months.
Offered in partnership with Georgian Court University, this 65-credit program is run exclusively at the Georgian Court campus in Lakewood, New Jersey.
Graduates of this program, alongside the College’s other alumni, have gone on to become dedicated healthcare professionals all over New Jersey and beyond. In fact, it is estimated that every hospital in the state employs at least one Seton Hall nursing alum – but beyond that, our graduates impact the lives of patients in areas as far and wide as Florida, Arizona and even Iraq. These individuals range from nurse practitioners, to nursing directors and officers, to presidents and CEOs of healthcare organizations.
Doctor of Nursing Practice Program Details
The College of Nursing offers a 36-45 credit Doctor of Nursing Practice (D.N.P.) degree program for the student who has completed an M.S.N. with a major in Advanced Practice Nursing (A.P.N.) or Health Systems Administration (H.S.A.), or 72 credits for the post-B.S.N. applicant. The program prepares graduates to improve the health care of diverse populations through the application of research, analysis of health care systems and leadership in development of practice models, health policy and standards of care. The D.N.P. curriculum is comprised of core course requirements in theory and research, and didactic and practice course requirements in a chosen specialty area, either Adult or Pediatric A.P.N. or H.S.A. These courses are offered within the College of Nursing, as well as at other schools and colleges in the university.
To prepare the students for practice with other professionals while implementing quality improvement, patient safety programs and information systems, the D.N.P. requires up to 500 hours of additional clinical practice for students with an M.S.N. and will culminate in completion of a Scholarly Project. Applicants will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis to determine required coursework and clinical hours.
Upon completion of the program, the D.N.P. graduate will be able to:
-Evaluate and apply conceptual models, theories and research in order to improve the health care of diverse populations
-Analyze the social, economic, political and policy components of health care systems which affect care planning and delivery
-Assume leadership roles in the development of clinical practice models, health policy and standards of care in order to advance health care
-Integrate professional values and ethical decision-making in advanced nursing practice
-Systematically investigate a clinically-focused area of nursing
