Lourdes-CCC Dual Admission BSN Program

Finish in Four Program

Camden County College, Our Lady of Lourdes School of Nursing and the W. Cary Edwards School of Nursing at Thomas Edison State University have created a dual admission nursing program that enables students to complete a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree in four years.

The Finish in Four Program allows graduates of the nursing cooperative program offered by Camden County College and Our Lady of Lourdes School of Nursing to transfer and apply up to 80 credits to the online RN-BSN program at Thomas Edison State University.

The program will provide a pipeline of BSN-prepared nurses to provide healthcare services to underserved populations in Camden and throughout the Delaware Valley. The public-private collaboration provides a seamless transition for eligible students enrolled in the nursing cooperative program offered by Camden County College and Our Lady of Lourdes School of Nursing, where students complete a nursing diploma and an associate in science degree. 

The partnership answers a key recommendation from the Institute of Medicine report, The Future of Nursing, which calls for an increase in the proportion of nurses with a baccalaureate degree to 80 percent by 2020.

Eligible students enrolled in the cohort-based program will be granted conditional acceptance to the RN-BSN program at Thomas Edison State University and full acceptance once they complete the nursing diploma and associate in science degree and pass the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN). 

Students enrolled under the collaboration will receive discounted tuition and a deferred payment option.
