Just wanted to quote something from the New Jersey Board of Nursing Regulation a.45:11-26:
"Nursing licensure is regulated by the New Jersey Board of Nursing. Applicants to all nursing programs
in the state must be aware of the requirements established by the board that must be met prior to applying for the examination leading to registered nurse licensure.
The board policy states that, "The applicant must submit evidence to the board of nursing in such form as the board may prescribe that the applicant:
1. has attained his or her eighteenth birthday;
2. is of good moral character, is not a habitual user of drugs and has never been convicted or has not pleaded nolo contendere, non vult contendere or no vult to an indictment, information or complaint alleging a violation of any Federal or State Law relating to narcotic drugs
3. holds a diploma from an accredited four-year high school or the equivalent thereof as determined by the New Jersey State Department of Education;
4. has completed a course of professional nursing study in an accredited school of professional nursing as defined by the board and holds a diploma therefrom."
*shrug* I'm not condemning anyone for what they do, but wanted to put my .02 in.
