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.

Founded by the Sisters of Mercy, we train our nurses to have successful and purposeful careers.

The Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (A.B.S.N) program enrolls students for starts in June and November of every year. Seats are limited, so those interested are encouraged to complete their applications as soon as possible.

The faculty was phenomenal. I never felt like I was doing this on my own. They really worked with me. It's very much about the compassion and, and, you know, being there for people. It's all about caring. It’s all about that personal connection to the people that you're in your career field for.
