Chamberlain College of Nursings newest campus in North Brunswick, N.J., is accepting applications for the summer semester, which begins May 4.
Located with DeVry University and its Keller Graduate School of Management, the Chamberlain campus will offer an on-site BSN program that can be completed in as few as three years of year-round, full-time study, according to a news release. It will feature Chamberlains Simcare Center nursing skills laboratory, which provides high-tech simulated patient care in clinical learning environments.
The North Brunswick campus is Chamberlains 17th location nationwide and will be led by Robin Goodrich, EdD, MS, RN, who brings more than 25 years of experience to the position.
I look forward to opening Chamberlains doors in May, Goodrich said in the release. The resources we provide to students are unmatched. As a single-purpose institution, Chamberlains dedication to advancing the nursing profession and nurturing a caring culture permeates the organization. It creates a sense of community for students, giving them a platform for success as extraordinary nurse graduates who will transform healthcare for the community and beyond.
Goodrich previously served as associate dean and associate professor in the Davenport Universitys Colleges of Health Professions and Arts and Sciences in Grand Rapids, Mich., and as an adjunct assistant professor of nursing education at Teachers College, Columbia University in Manhattan.
Goodrich earned a BSN from the University of Phoenix, an MSN from Western Connecticut State University and a doctorate of education from Teachers College, Columbia.
Between 2010 and 2020, healthcare is projected to add nearly 62,000 jobs in New Jersey, making it one of the fastest-growing industries in the state, according to the New Jersey-based Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.. In Middlesex County, home to Chamberlains new North Brunswick campus, healthcare employment is projected to increase by 8,100 jobs from 2008 to 2018.
Chamberlain will create new opportunities for qualified students to develop the skills needed for successful and fulfilling nursing careers, and for lifelong learning, Susan Groenwald, PhD, RN, ANEF, FAAN, national president of Chamberlain College of Nursing, said in the release.
