Bachelor of Science (Nursing)

Program Description

The B.S. Prelicensure program is designed to prepare students for a career in professional nursing practice. This is a traditional, four-year program beginning in the freshman year.

Graduates of the B.S. program are eligible to take the National Council Licensing Examination (NCLEX) to be licensed as a registered nurse (R.N.) and may apply for the Public Health Nursing Certificate from the California Board of Registered Nursing.

During the last clinical course in the 4th year, each student plans and implements a Clinically-based Scholarly Project designed to improve the system of care provided to patients and their families.

Students successfully completing the B.S. degree also acquire an educational foundation for entry into the master's program that prepares nurses for advanced practice roles such as nurse practitioners, clinical nurse specialists, and administrators in primary and acute care.
