Caldwell College Nursing Department to Offer Online RN TO BSN Program this Fall

May 6, 2013 at 5:10 PM


CALDWELL, NJ - Beginning with their fall semester, Caldwell College will be offering an online  “RN to BSN” program. The Nursing Department’s Bachelor of Science of Nursing will be available to all registered nurses.

“We are excited to be offering this new nursing program,” said the Director of  Caldwell’s Nursing Program, Marycarol Rossignol, PhD, RN, CNL. “It will give registered nurses who want the convenience and flexibility of an online program the ability to enjoy the same comprehensive program as our on campus students.”

Caldwell’s BSN Program is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education and can be completed in twelve months.

The department offers four entrance tracks leading to the BSN degree:
  • Second Degree
  • RN
  • Traditional
  • Transfer students

Selection for the program is based on a student’s admission GPA of 2.75 and nursing prerequisites are accepted with a grade of C or higher.

Students may receive credit by challenge examination for:
  • science courses over five years old
  • the Health and Cultural Assessment course

The RN curriculum is comprised of 61 credits of liberal arts core and prerequisite coursework and 33 credits of nursing major course work. The 61 required liberal arts credits are often substantially reduced for the RN student after transfer credit evaluation.

The program is “cohort-based” so that groups may progress through the curriculum together. “This allows us to respond to the need in healthcare for advancing education of nurses while addressing the demand for nurses in the marketplace, both in New Jersey and nationally,” Rossignol said.
