Find qualified RN to BSN programs offered by New Jersey nursing schools

Complete your Bachelor's degree in Nursing and advance your career

The garden state features several campus-based RN to BSN nursing programs to choose from. Students can find local programs offered by New Jersey colleges and universities to make their transition from being an RN to completing their BSN degree. Depending on the individual’s previous education the program could take anywhere from 1-3 years to complete.

In today’s tough economic times it is wise to take advantage of any opportunities that further your education and employment qualifications. RN-BSN transition programs offer current registered nurses the chance to add something to their resume that will make them stronger candidates for future nursing job openings and open doors to new career possibilities as well. Nurses with their BSN degree can apply for nurse management positions, nurse educator positions and facility administrator jobs.

New Jersey has a strong local economy powered by its close proximity to New York city. As many New Yorkers age and retire they will find homes in New Jersey. The elderly population consumes approximately 70% of the healthcare services in the United States and their need for care will drive demand for qualified nursing professionals. Therefore the career prospects for an educated RN in New Jersey look extremely promising.
