Some Things To Consider:

*****************************************************************************

Previously unsuccessful Nursing students: This is for students who failed any two clinical NURS. courses

(175, 176, 273, 274) or two non-clinical NURS. courses (174 or 275). The student will begin with Nursing 1.

       

Readmission to the nursing program provides two options:

       

        Option I

A student may reapply to the nursing program one time only after retaking Anatomy & Physiology I (BIOL 130), Anatomy & Physiology II (BIOL 131), and Student Success (ACAD 155) as Ocean County College Face-to-Face courses. They cannot be done as Distance Learning. A student must satisfy any new and/or additional requirements prior to acceptance.

Option II

A student may reapply to the nursing program one time only after successfully achieving an LPN license. A student must satisfy any new and/or additional requirements prior to acceptance. This student would be eligible to apply to the Traditional, OSOL or Career Mobility tracks.  Upon acceptance into the program, the student must repeat all NURS courses regardless of any prior successful grades.

Returning students must apply to the Admissions Office as a prospective nursing student.

*********************************************************************************

Students who are in the program and have to withdraw for more than 2 semesters (inactive)will have to test to re-enter the program. A student that is inactive more than 3 semesters will have to re-apply and start again with Nursing 1.
