Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.)

Accelerated Second Degree BSN

This program is a 14-month, 62-credit cohort model for those who already hold a non-nursing bachelor’s degree. It prepares students to practice nursing in a range of settings — from ambulatory care and community-health agencies to acute and long-term care facilities. Students learn to provide evidence-based care, using critical thinking and clinical decision-making. The program takes place at our Georgian Court campus in Lakewood, N.J.  It begins in the fall semester and ends in late October the following year. Graduates are eligible to sit for the NCLEX-R.N. licensing exam.

*The baccalaureate degree program in nursing/master's degree program in nursing/Doctor of Nursing Practice program and post-graduate APRN certificate programs at Seton Hall University are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education, 655 K Street, NW, Suite 750, Washington, DC 20001, 202-887-6791.
