Program Schedule

The RN to BSN program requires 16 months of study broken down into eight week phases in Fall and Spring and ten weeks during the summer semester. Unlike other RN to BSN programs, CSUSM builds in breaks inbetween semesters and holidays to allow you to pursue your education without comprising  your life and family priorities.
