Program Details

  • CSUB Nursing offers a traditional nursing program that runs 3 years/6 semesters with summers off.
  • CSUB Nursing accepts new students once a year in the fall semester.
  • The Traditional BSN program at CSUB is impacted. There are generally more applications received each year than the number of seats that can be accommodated.
  • Due to impacted status, it is strongly recommended that prospective applicants view the admission requirements and policies in the Pre-Nursing Handbook.
