Community College Collaboratives

The ADN-BSN Pathway Program is a collaborative model for academic progression in Nursing that links CSUN with designated California Community College (CC) partners. This program enables the ADN student to earn a BSN degree in just over 2 1/2 years from starting the program. This enables a significant increase to access and the capacity to advance more BSN-prepared RNs into the nursing workforce.
