Northern NJ/Southern NY Part Time Nursing Programs
- 0May 30, '10 by crsabtnrsingGreetings all,
A family member is considering a mid life switch into nursing. A part time program in which one can maintain their full time 9-5 employment and still attend nursing school at night/weekends/etc. is needed. Many local schools have programs (Bergen Community College/Dominican College/Holy Name Hospital/Fairleigh Dickinson University/Ramapo College, etc.) all offer programs but does anyone have experience with any of the programs?
Thanks in advance.

I applied to Rockland County too in Suffern, but was placed on a 1yr+ waiting list.
There is also, Passaic County, Seton Hall, Mountainside (sp?), William Paterson, Felician.
Keep in mind there are differences whereas some will offer Associates, some Diploma and some Bachelors. I say this because some hospitals (like Valley) will only take New Grads with Bachelors now. I believe by 2014, this will be the case with all.
- 0Aug 1, '10 by julia414i considered bcc to get my associates but i would need to take the evening courses and have been out of high school for 10 years. and then i read this: Evening Nursing applicants cannot be accepted until general corequisites (8 courses) have been completed. Evening nursing program accepts students for spring only.
General Education Elective.
Exit Examination: A nationally standardized examination will be given. Only those students who achieve a passing score and have met all other degree requirements will be certified by the Director to take the NCLEX-RN.
Note: Students enrolled in this program ARE REQUIRED to successfully complete a course in basic algebra if indicated by the Basic Skills Placement Test.
