Students begin the traditional BSN curriculum by taking liberal arts and science courses in their freshman and sophomore year on the South Orange Campus. One Nursing course is introduced during the first semester of sophomore year but is offered on the South Orange Campus. During the second semester of the sophomore year students begin all other nursing didactic and lab courses at the Interprofessional Health Sciences Campus (IHSC) in Nutley, N.J.

Student experiences include lab, simulation and V(virtual)-clinicals in addition to caring for clients in a variety of settings, including acute care, long-term care, hospice care, community-based agencies, and other settings where professional nurses care for individuals, population groups and communities.
