Raritan Valley Community College’s Nursing program has received continuing accreditation through 2028 from the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN).

“The continuing accreditation of RVCC’s Nursing program is a testament to our dedicated, knowledgeable and resourceful Nursing faculty members, who have advanced training in the field and years of valuable experience working in hospitals and other medical facilities,” said Dr. Deborah E. Preston, RVCC Vice President of Academic Affairs and Provost. “Because of the quality of the program, medical centers and healthcare facilities in the region are eager to hire RVCC Nursing graduates,” Dr. Preston continued.

The College offers both an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Nursing (RN) and an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Nursing (PN/AD Option).

The Nursing program prepares students to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN). The course of study is designed as a career program, and graduates may continue their studies for a Baccalaureate Degree in Nursing at a four-year institution. The program includes nursing courses, general education courses and clinical experiences. These experiences are based in a variety of healthcare settings in acute, sub-acute, and long-term care with community-based experiences under the supervision of nursing faculty. In addition, students master nursing intervention skills and experience simulation scenarios in the fully equipped Nursing Simulation Lab.
