I attend Raritan Valley Community College, and I have to tell you I've been on the wait list for almost 2 years! At RVCC, you must complete Anatomy+Phy I&II and have a certain level of math skills....I believe algebra....but you can test out as well...An applicant must also live in Somerset or Hunterdon County.
Most NJ schools require completion of A&P I&II before you're cleared for a spot in Nursing clinicals...If you really want to become a Nurse, start applying NOW!
I know RVCC has met their quota for the Fall 2005 class...
Have you tried your local community college? I also read somewhere on this forum Essex County College doesn't have a wait list...Good Luck!

RVCC offers Human Biology, but it's just an intro to human anatomy. Anatomy and Physiology I&II are more in depth when it comes to the structure and functions of the body. A8P I,II is 99.9% the course required for a nursing student.
I also know there are a few hospital diploma programs. Check them out as well.
