Notice: The Final LPN –RN track Cohort Winter 2021.
In July of 2019 Rowan College of Gloucester County merged with Cumberland County College. Thereby creating a new name of Rowan College of South Jersey.
As a result of the merger, the New Jersey State Board of Nursing has required a combined Nursing program between the two campuses.

Nursing is a wonderful health care profession. While learning to be a
professional or a practical nurse, students will be required to provide
direct client care, and maintain patient safety.
