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.

If you’re a licensed, practicing registered nurse, Georgian Court’s RN to B.S.N. program can help you further your career with a bachelor’s degree. Earning your B.S.N. sets the stage for a wide range of new opportunities in nursing.
