Accelerated BSN

We currently have cohorts planned for Fall, Spring, and Summer terms. The Fall program will accept one cohort in San Marcos, the Spring program will accept one cohort in San Marcos and the Summer program will admit one cohort in Temecula. Applications received now will be considered for admission into all planned cohorts.

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.

ABSN Studentgs in front of School

This fast-paced, 5 semester additional Bachelor's Degree program is designed for students who hold a degree in a discipline outside of Nursing and who have not completed any LVN or RN coursework. Pre-requisites are completed prior to entry. Students in the ABSN program complete 67 semester units of study in both didactic and clinical coursework. 

Upon completion of the program, students will be awarded the degree of Bachelor of Science in Nursing from California State University San Marcos.  Completion of the degree program enables individuals to sit for the NCLEX examination for RN licensure.
