RN to BSN Program

A female nurse

Complete part-time or full time with evening classes at Brookdale and online

The Bachelor of Science in Nursing program at Georgian Court University (GCU) is designed for registered nurses who ─ in addition to the higher salary ─ want faster degree completion and unlimited career opportunities upon graduation.

At GCU, you’ll learn from nurse leaders who know what it’s like to deliver quality healthcare on the frontlines. They’ll equip you with evidence-based nursing practices that lower mortality rates, lower “failure-to-rescue” rates, and improve your diagnostic proficiency. Founded by the Sisters of Mercy, we train our nurses to have successful and purposeful careers.

This program is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education and our decade-long partnership with Hackensack Meridian Health offers tremendous advantages for our nursing students post-graduation.
