The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) is an academic degree in the science and principles of nursing that broadens the expanse of nursing practice and qualifies students for advanced professional career opportunities in a wider array of healthcare settings, both locally and globally.
There is no direct entry BSN program at CSUMB. All entering students must be graduates of an Associates Degree in Nursing program (ADN) and hold a current California Registered Nursing license. Students will be awarded 20 units of nursing credit for successful completion of the NCLEX.
The BSN degree can be obtained in approximately 12 to 15 months, depending on the pathway.
