This 60-credit full-time nursing program enables non-nurses to complete a Bachelor of Science degree in 12 months. The program is comprised of:
In addition to the courses listed below, students are required to complete live patient clinical experiences at local New Jersey facilities and simulation experiences at Thomas Edison State University in Trenton, New Jersey.
*These graduate-level courses give students nine graduate credits that will apply to the Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) degree requirements at Thomas Edison State University upon acceptance to that degree program. Students planning on advancing their degree into the MSN program must get a B or better in these courses. Accelerated 2nd Degree BSN students may apply to the MSN program after successful completion of the BSN program and passing the NCLEX-RN®.
All nursing courses are completed through the W. Cary Edwards School of Nursing and cannot be taken out of sequence. Due to the rigorous nature of the program, outside employment is strongly discouraged.
In addition to course exams, clinical requirements, and other assignments, students are required to take a subject matter ATI exam in each one of the on-campus clinical theory courses. Only one course in the program may be repeated one time. A second failure in any course will result in dismissal from the program.
Students are expected to comply with all clinical guidelines and performance requirements set forth in the Accelerated 2nd Degree BSN Program Student Handbook. Any breach of clinical policy may result in dismissal from the program. Students must also be able to meet all the essential requirements of the clinical program.
