The RN to BS track is designed for students who already hold a registered nurse (RN) license. The curriculum builds on the existing foundation of nursing knowledge and clinical experience possessed by registered nurses. The RN, with an associate's degree or a hospital school diploma, will receive 33 credits for previous nursing courses, and can transfer up to 90 additional credits for previously taken non-nursing required courses. A minimum of 30 credits must be taken at Rutgers. Although most students attend Rutgers part-time, the required RN to BS courses can be completed in one calendar year with full-time attendance. 

Students are admitted for both fall and spring semesters. Applicants must have a valid New Jersey Registered Nurse license to enroll in the program. Nursing courses are offered in online and hybrid formats. Non-nursing courses are offered in the classroom setting. The RN to BS track is currently offered at three locations: Rutgers-Camden, Atlantic Cape Community College, and Mercer County Community College.
