Holy Name Hospita has a diploma program for RN's and LPN's. You should apply soon, they may have the application on their website, if not - they can mail one to you. When I applied there - they still required interviews. That was in 2006. The cost is somewhat over $20,000 for the 2 years, and that was not all inclusive. You could make it an Associated degree program if you took a couple classes (provided at their campus) from another school (I forget which one). It supposed to great program, but when I applied there I also applied at another school which was significantly less cost. You can do a search for their website - Holy Name Hospital Teaneck NJ school of nursing
Bergen Community College has a 2 year associates degree program. I am currently in my last semester there. It took me 3 years since I took a year to do all the pre and co-req's so when I strated nursing classes, I only had to do nursing classes. It is very competitive to get in, the basically go by test scores, and although you have to be invited to test - I really am not sure what the criteria are. I had a 4.0 gpa - but there are a few who came in right from hs, and some I know who had 3.8, and I believe even 3.7 gpa - but again, I am not really sure. You can get an application to BCC on their web page - for general studies, then you apply separately for the nursing program
, and when accepted - they change your major automatically. Applications for fall 2009 are due soon, maybe March 1 or March 10 - check the web site, or google Bergen Community College nursing program, and it may bring you to BCC nursing page. The secretary's name is Angie, and she should be able to help you with further info. SOmeone told me they recently changed their nursing admitting tests/procedures, so it is best to get it right from staff.
Good Luck, and good luck with the move.
