Step up your career in Nursing
We are currently not accepting applications for this program. Please check this page for updates!
The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (RN to BSN) program at California State University San Marcos is a part-time program designed for the working RN. Upon completion of this program students will receive a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing (BSN). The BSN degree allows individuals to assume leadership roles within the clinical setting and establishes a foundation for graduate-level studies. The program is designed for students who currently possess an ADN degree from a regionally accredited institution.
The program is designed to fulfill the needs of the working RN. Classes are offered one-day per week and all course work required for degree completion may be completed within 6 academic terms including summer sessions. The program utilizes a cohort model, admitting 24 students per location every Fall Semester. Students pursuing this program option may take classes at the main-campus, or via our satellite campus in Temecula (Southwest Riverside County).
A cohort is a group of students who work through a curriculum together to achieve the same academic degree. Because they are accepted into the same program, take their classes together, and graduate together, students in cohorts tend to form a strong support system and professional network that benefit them during their degree program and beyond.
The program is accredited with the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) through the American Association of Colleges of Nursing.
We will do our best to accommodate a one day a week schedule, however during clinical rotations a one day a week schedule may not be possible
