Q. What type of program is the Professional Nursing program?
The Professional Nursing program educates and prepares students for entry level registered nursing positions in a variety of health care settings. The Professional Nursing program has two options. The generic option is for individuals without existing nursing licenses. The advanced placement option (also known as the LPN to RN bridge option) is for individuals holding a current, unencumbered practical nursing license. Students requesting advanced placement in the Professional Nursing program are required to provide Jersey College with an official transcript from their Practical Nursing education to obtain credit for prior learning.
