Re-Enrollment Policy and Procedure

In accordance with CSUSM Undergraduate Student progress policies, the California Board of Registered Nursing (BRN), American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN/CACN) and the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE), Re-Enrollment is designed to assist students to re-enter the nursing program when a delay in program progression has occurred.

When situations occur that prevent/prohibit a student from progressing through the assigned cohort nursing sequence, the  Re-Enrollment Policy and Procedure will apply and the process to re-enter the program and join another cohort will be initiated. This process will provide students due process and opportunities to resume nursing courses as soon as possible.

RN - BSN student will have to complete their own Re-Enrollement Form

A Re-Enrollment Petition is required for re-enrollment to the nursing program and nursing courses.
