Nursing

Looking for a rewarding, in-demand career where you can make a difference? The B.S.N. in Nursing from Georgian Court University is a smart first step.

Nursing continues to be listed among the top occupations in terms of job growth. GCU’s nursing program is designed to address the current and future nursing demands in New Jersey and throughout the nation. The Georgian Court–Meridian Health School of Nursing at GCU delivers a hands-on educational platform in partnership with Hackensack Meridian Health. You’ll practice in Hackensack Meridian Health’s High Technology Simulation Laboratories, a state-of-the-art simulated health care setting that’s as close to the real thing as it gets.

In the beginning it was really, really difficult, but as I came out of my shell, I found support in reaching out to people on campus and building relationships. I joined in group texts, chats about homework and labs, and carpooled to clinicals at the local hospital. Although all of us in the nursing program had different struggles, we learned to support each other. That’s what carried me through: I met people who made me believe in myself.
