The Cooperative Nursing Program
Trinitas School of Nursing, Elizabeth, New Jersey, and Union County College, Cranford, New Jersey, conduct a Cooperative Nursing Program.
The Cooperative Nursing Program offers a Diploma in Nursing from Trinitas School of Nursing (TSON) and an Associate in Science Degree from Union County College upon successful completion of the curriculum.
Fully accredited by the New Jersey Board of Nursing and the Accreditation Commission for Nursing Education, Inc., the program offers a basic course of study in nursing. It provides a sound theoretical base of knowledge in the nursing, biological, behavioral and sociological sciences and integrates this knowledge into academic and practical experiences within the health and illness continuum of client care. Utilization of a variety of health care agencies facilitates the application of all aspects of the students' learning.
Students earn a total of 75 credits in the Cooperative Nursing Program. Upon graduation, students are eligible to sit for the National Council Licensing Examination (NCLEX) for Registered Nurse Licensure.
Science and liberal arts courses (general education) may be completed at the Elizabeth, Plainfield, or Cranford campus of Union County College. Nursing courses are conducted at the Elizabeth campus by the School of Nursing.
Students may be granted up to 36 transfer college credits. Individuals wishing to receive transfer credit for college courses require grades of "C" or better.
