RN to BSN Completion Program
The Summer 2012-2013 Application deadline has been extended to April 13, 2012.
The Department of Nursing at California State University, Bakersfield proudly offers the Online RN to BSN Completion program. The RN to BSN Completion program has been offered on-campus for several years, but has been utilizing the Blackboard system since 2009 to provide higher education access to both local and Bakersfield surrounding area students (Antelope Valley and Tulare/Kings County) online. This program is a great option for students who would like to obtain a Baccalaureate Degree in Nursing after completion of an Associate Degree in Nursing.
The RN to BSN Completion Program is offered once a year during the Summer term and allows accepted students to complete the baccalaureate degree in twelve months (Summer through Spring). The program requires that all students complete 100 total clinical hours during the Winter term; all students will need to be present at the Kern County Department of Public Health to complete these hours (day/times TBD by the Department of Nursing after admission). Students are also required to complete all general education requirements for the degree by the last quarter of the program (Spring).
Prospective Summer 2012 students should apply during the application submission period (February 1st, 2012 through April 13th, 2012).
The RN to BSN Completion Program is impacted, therefore applicants will be ranked based on primary and secondary points. The top forty students will be selected for the program.
