LPN to RN Track



Notice: The Final LPN –RN track Cohort Winter 2021.

In July of 2019 Rowan College of Gloucester County merged with Cumberland County College. ​Thereby creating a new name of Rowan College of South Jersey.
As a result of the merger, the New Jersey State Board of Nursing has required a combined Nursing program between the two campuses. Pending approval of the new curriculum from the Board of Nursing and the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN), the new program is anticipated to be implemented in fall of 2021.
Future LPN-RN tracks are on hold. Prospective candidates are eligible to apply to the revised generic track curriculum for fall of 2021.​​​​

An LPN who wishes to challenge the first semester of the nursing program must apply under the LPN-to-RN Track Program​. The applicant must fulfill the entrance requirements and once accepted may receive advanced placement.  

A Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN), licensed in the state of New Jersey is eligible to enter the Registered Nurse (RN) Option at Cumberland County College, with advanced placement. Those LPN’s accepted into LPN to RN program and successfully completing the criteria will be awarded credits for the first semester Nursing course of the RCSJ-Cumberland RN Program and will be entered into the second semester of the RN Program.
