School nursing in NJ requires a minimum of an RN/BSN with specific (approximately 30 graduate level credit) post-baccalaureate certification. One certification permits a nurse to teach health (instructional) , the other is strictly school nurse only (non-instructional).

Excelsior does not accept federal financial aid for LPN to ASN/RN because the program is examination based not coursework based. Most county colleges and one private school (Eastwick in northern NJ) offer a LPN to RN/ASN program. Some schools
are two semesters others like Ocean County College are three semesters. In addition all the other general education courses like A&P, micro, English, math/statistics, sociology, developmental psychology, etc. are required for the ASN.
