University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey
The University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey-Stratford (UMDNJ-Stratford) was a health sciences institution that was originally established in 1954. However, the university was dissolved in 2013. Most of the schools were merged with Rutgers University, creating the Rutgers School of Biomedical and Health Sciences. The School of Nursing in Stratford was not included in this merger. Before the dissolution of the university, UMDNJ-Stratford offered over 100 degree and certificate programs and served over 7,000 students annually. The dissolution of the university was the direct result of a series of Medicaid overbillings and several other scandals.
The school offers several programs, including traditional BSN, accelerated BSN, MSN, DNP, BSN to DNP, and PhD programs. The accelerated BSN program includes full-time and part-time options. The full-time plan allows students to earn their BSN in just 15 months, while the part-time plan takes up to 30 months. With the part-time option, students take two classes per week during the day and complete their clinical experience on the weekends. Some of the programs that were offered at the main UMDNJ campus are now offered through Rutgers University. However, the programs at Stratford may be available through Rowan University, which is now called The Rowan University School of Osteopathic Medicine.
The school also offers the same program on a part-time biases for students who want to take it slow.
The accelerated version takes 15 months to complete, while the part-time program takes 30 months or 8 terms.
The part-time version doesn't have evening class options. Only two daytime classes per week with weekend clinicals.
The accelerated program starts in spring, summer and fall terms while the part-time one starts only in Spring.
