Partnership: Seton Hall University’s Accelerated B.S.N. Program for Holders of a Bachelor’s Degree
This program is completely separate from Georgian Court University's own Accelerated B.S.N. Program, which is described in GCU's undergraduate catalog. Seton Hall University’s College of Nursing and Georgian Court University have entered into a partnership with several South Jersey health care systems to offer Seton Hall University’s accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.) program on the campus of Georgian Court University. College graduates who aspire to careers as professional nurses may be eligible for this program. Applicants must possess a bachelor’s degree in a field other than nursing with a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.0 and complete prerequisite courses (which are offered at Georgian Court) prior to starting the nursing program. The prerequisite courses (a total of 25 credits) may be accepted from the student’s first bachelor’s degree or may be taken at Georgian Court or at another institution accredited by one of the accreditors previously designated as "regional" accreditors (e.g., Middle States Commission on Higher Education). They are Human Anatomy and Physiology I & II (8 credits; BI213 Human Anatomy & Physiology I and BI214 Human Anatomy & Physiology II), Chemistry (must include some organic and biochemistry) (4 credits; CH151 Chemistry for the Health Sciences), Microbiology (4 credits; BI219 Microbiology), Developmental Psychology (3 credits); Healthcare Ethics (3 credits; PL354 Bioethics), Statistics (3 credits; BI203 Experimental Design & Statistics, SO201 Social Statistics, or PS430 Rsrch Mthds & Stats for the Beh Sciences). To apply to the program, the student must apply to Seton Hall University. Further information and an application packet may be obtained by calling Seton Hall University at 732-987-2621 (visit https://www.shu.edu/nursing/). To take the prerequisite courses at Georgian Court, students may contact the Georgian Court Office of Admissions. All of the nursing courses in the accelerated B.S.N. program are taught by Seton Hall University faculty members, and the degree in the accelerated B.S.N. program is awarded solely by Seton Hall University.
