Accelerated Nursing Program for Non-Nurses

Georgian Court’s 14-month accelerated nursing program features small class sizes and hands-on learning

Become a Registered Nurse and Launch Your New Career in 14 Months

Georgian Court University is the smart choice for those serious about transitioning to nursing. Our decade-long partnership with Hackensack Meridian Health, New Jersey’s largest health provider, offers a tremendous advantage for our nursing students.

Our 14-month, accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program is an intensive, hands-on experience that prepares students to achieve RN licensure and launch their careers soon after completion. Founded by the Sisters of Mercy, we train our nurses to have successful and purposeful careers.

We’re currently accepting applications for Spring 2021 on a first-come, first-served basis. Seats are limited, so those interested are encouraged to complete their applications as soon as possible.
