Welcome to the CSUN Nursing Department!
CSUN has a long history of commitment and dedication to Nurses in the San Fernando Valley. As a result of that commitment, CSUN offers innovative programs geared specifically to the needs of our local community.
The mission of the CSUN Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree is to develop professional nursing leaders in all areas of practice who can apply new and past nursing knowledge and build upon existing competencies. We value integrity, advocacy, excellence, lifelong learning, respect for others, and competence.
CSUN offers two Transfer programs for students who are admitted to the Community College Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) programs, or who already have a Registered Nursing license. These programs include the ADN-BSN Community College Collaborative and the RN to BSN.
The 2nd Bachelor Degree option includes the Accelerated BSN. This program is a pre-licensure option and is the only option available to students who have already earned a previous Bachelor degree, and completed the necessary requirements to apply.
Students who complete the BSN requirements at CSUN are also eligible to apply for the Public Health Nurse Certificate offered through the California Board of Registered Nursing.
**Currently CSUN does not offer a Traditional/Generic pre-licensure Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) for anyone who is looking to complete their first Bachelor degree.**
You are welcome to contact us for more information regarding any of our nursing programs, and for any questions you may have related to your nursing education. We look forward to hearing from you.
