Admission Application

RN to BS Track

The RN to BS advanced placement 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 RNs. The RN student is admitted with an associate's degree or a hospital school diploma and awarded 33 credits for attainment of the RN license and up to 60 credits for transfer courses. A minimum of 30 credits must be taken at Rutgers. The required RN to BS courses can be completed full-time in one calendar year, although most RN students are employed and attend university part-time.  The RN to BS track is currently offered at three locations:  Rutgers-Camden, Atlantic Cape Community College and Mercer County Community College.
