Completing your BSN online at Cal State San Marcos will empower you with the practical experience and professional background to help your patients and your community achieve the goal of optimal health. CSUSM’s online RN to BSN also lets you earn your pre-nursing core credits concurrently with your nursing courses. This not only gives you nursing skills and knowledge you can apply immediately to your current nursing practice, but also allows you to graduate sooner. In order to ensure your transition back to school is successful, in-service RNs prepared at the master’s degree level or above will provide you personal coaching and assistance throughout the program.
As a graduate of the program, you will gain:
- A well-developed professional portfolio of real-world clinical, leadership and case management experience
- Evidence-based research skills gained through practical group projects and exercises
- Ability to apply for California Public Health Nurse Certification
