Programs

Students need to be aware that due to the competitive nature of admission into the Nursing Program, granting a seat into the professional (clinical) phase is based on the number of courses completed at CCM, the grades received, and the overall GPA, at the time the Fundamentals of Nursing Professional Phase Application Form is filed. Morris County, NJ residents who meet the above criteria will be given preferential consideration. Admission into the professional (clinical) phase is not guaranteed. 

Students must meet all the college admission criteria and be accepted into the nursing major prior to filing a Fundamentals of Nursing Professional Phase Application Form.
 
The Nursing Program Offers Several Tracks Of Study

Pre-Professional (Non-Clinical Study) Phase

Students in this track may study full time or part time and take day or evening classes. This phase is designed for students who are currently not eligible for admission to the professional (clinical) phase. Students in this phase can take all general education and science courses required for the nursing major. Once students complete the non-clinical courses they file an Fundamentals of Nursing Professional Phase Application  Form for the day or evening study track in the Office of Records and Registration. Advancement into the clinical phase is not guaranteed once non-clinical course work is completed.
 
Professional (Clinical) Study Phase

Once a student is admitted into the Professional Phase of the Nursing Program, the sequential nursing courses (classroom and campus laboratory activities) can be taken in the Day Study Track or the Evening Study Track. Due to availability of clinical sites and experiences, clinical schedules may vary. For example, a student in the Day or Evening Track may be required to attend a clinical experience from 1:00pm to 9:00pm or 7:00am to 7:00pm.


Traditional Day Study Track

This track is offered as a day sequence beginning in the fall semester. It is designed to be completed in four sequential uninterrupted semesters of full-time study. Students must be eligible for graduation upon completion of Nursing 214 (Advanced Medical-Surgical Nursing). Currently enrolled students seeking admission to this study track must file an Fundamentals of Nursing Professional Phase Application  Form in the Office of Records and Registration by March 1st. The decision to grant a seat will be based on the number of required credits completed, science grades, and the student’s GPA at the time the Fundamentals of Nursing Professional Phase Application  Form is filed. To be considered, the student’s GPA must be a 2.5 or higher and all grades must be a “C” or higher. If science courses were completed seven years or more prior to filing the letter of intent, students must prove competency by testing or retake the course. Please be aware that multiple grades of “D”, "W", or "F" prior to obtaining a passing grade in the courses, will affect chances of getting a seat in the professional (clinical) track.
