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.
