BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN NURSING (B.S.N.)
Nursing is the intersection of science and empathy—and it is one of the nation’s fastest-growing fields. Nurses work on the front lines with patients and help to promote health, prevent illness, and support people in need. If you’re caring by nature and want to make a difference in the lives of others, you could excel as a nurse.
At Georgian Court University, our Bachelor of Science in Nursing sets the stage for a rewarding and fast-paced career. In addition to rigorous academic coursework, you will be equipped with strong collaboration, problem-solving, and critical-thinking skills that will prepare you for success as a registered nurse. The B.S.N. degree program will also help you sharpen your hands-on skills. GCU’s partnership with the Hackensack Meridian health network means you’ll enjoy access to cutting-edge health technology, numerous networking opportunities, and real-world clinical placements in Hackensack Meridian locations across New Jersey.
GCU is also excited to announce the construction of a brand new, cutting-edge center for nursing and health studies. This project aims to expand on our tradition of training students in the caring professions and to meet a pressing nationwide shortage of nurses.

Registered nurses (RN) work in a variety of settings, including hospitals, physicians’ offices, long-term care facilities, schools, outpatient clinics, and more. As an RN, you will also have the option to specialize. The nursing field includes many specialties, such as pediatric nurses, nurse anesthetists, cardiac nurses, ER nurses, nurse practitioners, and more.
Nurses need to be able to make quick decisions, adapt to changes, and handle a fast-paced work environment. That’s why you’ll get plenty of hands-on experience at GCU.
