Empowering the Next Generation of Nurses

Redefining Healthcare Services

California State University San Marcos School of Nursing was founded in 2006 through a generous donation from Palomar Health. A partnership was then forged with Extended Learning to expand the School of Nursing offerings and to help meet the healthcare needs of San Diego County.
