The CSUN Nursing Program curriculum is approved by the California Board of Registered Nursing to prepare eligible applicants for certification in Public Health Nursing in California. Certification is granted by the Board of Nursing (BRN) after completion of curriculum and application to the Board.

The required courses to complete in the CSUN Nursing program to be eligible for the PHN certification are Community Health Nursing Lecture & Lab (NURS 428 & NURS 428L). Please check the eligibility requirements for this program. If you are interested in registering, please email Academic Advisor Sterling Davis at sterling.davis@csun.edu
