JFK Muhlenberg Snyder School of Nursing offers a Cooperative Program with Union County College. Our graduates will receive both a Diploma in Nursing and an Associate in Science Degree.
The actual length of the nursing program varies depending on the nursing track you are enrolled in:
  • Accelerated (requires a prior baccalaureate degree) - three nursing semesters
  • Generic (option available to all accepted applicants) – five nursing semesters
  • LPN-to-RN (requires a current LPN license) – three nursing semesters
  • Pathways to BSN (requires higher entrance test scores) – five nursing semesters

Is there a waiting list for admissions?

There is no waiting list for admission into the nursing program. However, there may be a waiting list for certain nursing clinical courses. Enrollment for all nursing courses (NURM 100, NURM 119, NURM 120, NURM 121, NURM 122, NURM 141 and NURM 221) is determined by date of admittance, satisfactory completion of the science and other general education course requirements and seat availability.
The general education courses are offered day, evening and weekend hours. The Nursing courses vary by track:
  • Accelerated – daytime hours only
  • Generic – day or evening hours
  • LPN-to-RN – Transition course offered every other year beginning in May and ending in June, day or evening hours
  • Pathways to BSN – daytime hours only
Applications are processed on a rolling basis for either fall or spring entrance. See Admission Requirements.
No. It is neither recommended nor necessary to do so. The JFK Muhlenberg Snyder School of Nursing program consists of two parts: general education courses (prerequisites and co-requisites to the nursing clinical courses), which include science and liberal arts courses, and the nursing courses (clinical). While advanced standing may be awarded, courses are not pre-requisites for acceptance. You do not have to attend Union County College first (or any other college) before applying to the JFK Muhlenberg Snyder Schools' nursing program.

The term "pre-requisite" is not the same as the term "admission requirements." Pre-requisite courses are courses that must be completed before progressing to the next course. The pre-requisite courses listed in the School of Nursing curriculum are part of the nursing program. They are not admission requirements. Therefore, you do not have to complete them prior to applying for admission.

There are Admission Requirements for the JFK Muhlenberg Snyder Schools. Also there is Additional Admission Information which addresses additional criteria and supplemental information to the application process. 

The minimum passing grade for all nursing courses is "C" (70 – 74). However, to transfer a nursing course, the previous nursing school's grade requirements must be satisfied.

No. Application for Admission requires the submission of an Essay along with the Application for Admissions.

However, if the Application and Essay are completed, you can drop off the packet at the JFK Muhlenberg Snyder Schools along with your Application Fee of $75 paid by certified check or money order.
