The new four-year BSN program track, expected to be open for enrollment in fall 2018, will be housed on the second floor of Henderson. Plans call for conversion of existing rooms 203 and 250 into a large clinical skills and diagnostics center which will include 14 beds and a patient simulation room with an adjacent faculty observation area.
With the approval of the New Jersey State Board of Nursing, the curriculum for the new four-year program is expected to be finalized in spring 2018. Students entering the College will apply to the major at the end of their first year.
The Nursing program at the College of Saint Elizabeth is committed to educating registered nurses through scholarship and critical inquiry to become leaders in the spirit of service and social responsibility. We offer a variety of degrees and certificates that prepare nurses to promote, maintain and restore health to patients and educate future nurses. Classes are held at our home campus and in a number of regional health centers and fit a professional work schedule.
The RN to BSN Nursing Program is accredited by the New Jersey Board of Nursing (124 Halsey Street, Newark, NJ 07102 | 973-504-6430) and both the RN to BSN and the MSN programs are accredited through the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing, Inc. (3343 Peachtree Road, Suite 850, Atlanta, GA 30326, 404-975-5000).
Upon approval of a new four-year BSN program, the New Jersey Board of Nursing grants provisional accreditation for the program. Full accreditation from the Board is only granted after the first cohort of students complete the program and achieves the requisite passing rate on the NCLEX licensure exam.
