Pre-Licensure BSN Program

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.

Foreign Degree Nurses: Unfortunately, CSUB Nursing is unable to accommodate any additional students wishing to take nursing courses out of sequence (MS, OB, etc.) without being formally accepted to the 3 year BSN program. Nursing courses that are offered are only available to those who have been accepted to begin the BSN program from start to finish.
