Physiology and Hygiene Requirement

What is the NJ Physiology and Hygiene requirement?

NJ requires new teachers to have a general knowledge of physiology and hygiene for certification. Currently, the requirement can be met by completion of a course.

Transcripts will be reviewed for a course in biology, human ecology, nutrition, nursing, sexuality, zoology, drugs and alcohol, anatomy or health and physiology.

You will receive notification through your Monmouth University email to schedule an appointment to take the P&H test if you DO NOT have a course that meets the requirement.
