Nursing, General​

On July 1, 2019, the former Cumberland County College and Rowan College of Gloucester County, merged to become Rowan College of South Jersey. Due to the merger, the New Jersey Board of Nursing has required the two programs to join and create one unified curriculum.

The Board of Nursing approved the new curriculum in fall of 2020, with the first cohort admitted in fall 2021. The curriculum will be delivered on both the Cumberland and Gloucester campuses.

The LPN-RN Track program is designed​ for students who wish to enter the healthcare profession as a Registered Nurse (RN). The program combines general education with nursing courses to prepare current licensed practical nurses (LPN) for entry-level Registered Nursing (RN) practice.

Upon successful completion of the program, graduates are eligible to apply to take the National Council Licensing Examination (NCLEX-RN) and apply to a Board of Nursing for licensure as registered nurses.

Students who apply to the LPN-RN Track program must hold a current PN license in good standing and have graduated from an accredited PN program.
