First check the W2s to be sure the state withholding section has the correct state selected in box 15 based on what the employer put in that box.

  • In the search box upper right type W2 > Jump to W2

Next, when you are in the NJ return, be sure to check the residency status and select "Full year resident" as shown on the attached screenshot.  As a full year resident in TurboTax the income will flow to that return.

  • State Taxes tab > Continue to review residency > If necessary delete and add back
  • Click to enlarge and view the screenshot

PA and NJ are reciprocal state which means PA will refund all of the withholding and charge no tax on wages earned by a NJ resident.  The PA return should be completed first as a nonresident and then the NJ return.
