University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey
The University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey was a private institution in Newark, New Jersey. It offered diplomas and certificate programs in various fields, with most programs designed to be completed in two years. The university was founded in 1954. However, it was dissolved in 2013. Most of the schools merged with Rutgers University to become the Rutgers School of Biomedical and Health Sciences. The nursing programs are offered through the Rutgers University School of Nursing, with the main campus in Newark. The school provides clinical experience through partnerships with Newark’s University Hospital, the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, and several other local clinics.
The school offers five nursing programs, including three paths for obtaining a BSN. The BSN programs include traditional BSN, accelerated BSN, and RN to BSN programs. The accelerated program includes full-time and part-time options for students with a bachelor’s degree in an unrelated field. With the full-time program, students can earn their BSN in just 15 months. With the part-time program, classes are offered in the evenings and on the weekends. Students can enjoy a lighter schedule and earn their BSN in 30 months. The graduate-level programs include MSN, DNP, BSN to DNP, and PhD programs.
