Umdnj School Of Nursing Admissions Essay

I just graduated this spring from the program (1 of 16) and have nothing but good experiances concerning coursework and clinicals. Albeit

this can change semester to semester since the program is new and some clinical instructors are transient by nature (ie: split

Educator/Clinician job roles). In addition, like any other nursing school, learning is facilitated but not spoon feed. You ultimately receive

what you put out in effort, externships, and extracirricular commitments. Another misconception is that the program confers a BSN. To

clarify further, the program is a bachelor of science in nursing (BScN). If you have any questions concerning admission standards in the

Rutgers Newark/NB satelitte campus at CCC Blackwood I would suggest you review them with (MODERATOR EDIT OF NAME) at the buisness office on

campus. Students are considered on a basis of a variety of factors besides pure GPA (work experiance, referrals, essay, ect..). Although I

had a 3.9 GPA on admission, other classmates were admitted in the low 3's. Hope I was of some assistance.
