Felician University

By arrangement with Felician University (Lodi, NJ), nurses can earn their Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree on-site at Mercer County Community College. Felician offers a fast-track RN to BSN program enabling registered nurses to earn their BSN in only 15 months by attending class just one day a week. The 48-credit program consists of 27 credits of nursing courses and 21 credits of liberal arts and science courses.

The program is designed for students who are licensed RNs, have earned their associate degree in nursing or a nursing diploma, and have at least 33 liberal arts credits. This program is open to MCCC's Nursing program associate degree graduates as well as local New Jersey licensed registered nurses.

The RN to BSN fast-track program is specifically designed for the working nurse, and prepares registered nurses for leadership roles in client care and management. The four-year BSN degree is often a requirement for advancement in today's job market.

Because the Felician program requires applicants to hold an RN license in New Jersey, students who hold a license from another state must apply to the New Jersey State Board of Nursing for endorsement by the end of the first semester.
