Introduction

The Eastwick Education owns Eastwick College in Ramsey along with the Hohokus Schools located throughout New Jersey in Hackensack, Nutley, Paterson, and Paramus. It became the first school that is corporation-owned to obtain approval from the New Jersey Commission of Higher Education. It is currently affiliated with dozens of medical centers and hospitals which results in students having access to many resources before and after graduation.

Academics

Associate degrees provide students with very specific skill sets to prepare them for work in the health industry. The five programs with associate degrees available are Surgical Technology, Allied Health, Cardiovascular Sonography, Registered Nursing, and Health Information Technology. The completion of the program can take as little as fifteen months if a student is dedicated to doing the extra work necessary.

Medical programs also prepare individuals for work at hospitals and medical centers and include Licensed Practical Nursing, Medical Assisting, Surgical Technology, and Ultrasound Technology. The offering of these programs is a result of the college being approved by the New Jersey Board of Nursing. It is affiliated with American Medical Technologists as well as the Cardiovascular Credentialing Institute.

Besides learning for careers in the medical field, the school also has programs in technology and business. Some of the technology programs offered are Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refridgeration along with a program in computer and electronics. The business program includes classes focusing in business administration, accounting and bookkeeping, along with curriculum in computer programs most often found in the business world such as Quickbooks and Microsoft Office.

Most Popular Fields of Study

Admissions

The admissions staff of EC are dedicated to helping prospective students learn about the many programs available and can help organize campus tours at any of the five locations. This ensures that each student ends up in a program that fits their personality and their career aspirations. Not all applicants are accepted, although the vast majority typically are.

Students who begin their college career here can rest easy knowing that many institutions accept transfer credit because of their affiliations. Institutions that recognize the American Council on Education’s College Credit Recommendation Service are most likely to give transfer students credit towards their degree programs. The Dean of Students is available to help those who are considering this option.

They are also considered a degree partner with Thomas Edison State College, which facilitates transfers of credit for their two and four-year degree programs.

Financial Aid

Many students apply for and receive financial aid to assist them with the cost of attending this institution. Because the programs are typically two years or less, completing a degree here can be affordable. The costs associated with a certificate program instead of a degree are even less and therefore more affordable. Students who need to take out loans feel comfortable doing so because of the high probability that they will find employment soon after graduation.

Because it is a private institution, Eastwick College does not differentiate between in-state and out-of-state applicants. They do, however, participate in the Federal Title IV financial aid program so students should have little trouble financing their education.

Students

Because they focus on training individuals to meet the current needs of employers, the students tend to have a primary goal of quickly entering the job market.

In terms of age, there are very few students who attend straight out of high school at age 18 or 19. Most are in their twenties or over thirty years old.

Students do not have the option to live on campus, but they still have access to many resources. This includes the Eastwick College library that can be visited in person or via the internet. Ramapo College’s library in Mahwah, just five miles away, is also open to the students.

The library specifically makes an effort to support students and reduce the need for them to buy books. This includes access to 600+ professional journals with the premier nursing and allied health database CINAHL. Study guides are also available for students who are preparing to take their exams as part of their certification process.

Student Enrollment Demographics

Local Community

The college is located in Ramsey, New Jersey, about twenty minutes away from the center of Manhattan. Because of the proximity to New York City, students can take advantage of all the cultural and social events nearby. It is easy to connect to the city via public transportation or by car.
