BLACKWOOD – Rutgers School of Nursing will hold a transfer event on Dec. 4 at Camden County College.
Camden County College has many nursing students who are preparing for transfers or for taking the next step in their careers. The Rutgers nursing transfer event is intended to provide information and guidance to nursing students who want to apply to the Rutgers program.
Heather Houser is a pre-nursing student at CCC who takes online classes to finish her degree. Houser also works for CCC in Camden as a public safety worker. “I have thought about Rutgers as a choice for a transfer,” Houser said. “Of course I have to keep my GPA up.” Houser has been looking at different options for transfers such as Rutgers, Our Lady of Lourdes School of Nursing and Gloucester County College. “Maybe I will take a trip down to Blackwood for the event,” Houser said.
Rutgers is welcoming nursing students who want to attend the two-year or three-year nursing programs. They want all nursing students who may want to attend Rutgers School of Nursing in the next couple of years to come to get information about the school.
Jenn Schrank is a licensed practical nursing student at CCC in Blackwood. Schrank has a bachelor’s degree and wants to become a registered nurse. “I would like to find a four-year school to transfer to,” Schrank said. “I like Rutgers but it depends on what they have to offer.” She works as a certified nurse’s aide part time and will attend the transfer event.
The transfer event will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. Dec. 4 in the Community Center on the Blackwood campus of Camden County College. For more information, call 856-225-6226.
