LVN to BSN Program

When to Apply

You must complete a separate, online application  to the School of Nursing for entry to this Nursing program. The Fall Applications for entry to our LVN to BSN Program will be linked on our Nursing Web site from Oct. 1 - Nov. 30, for a fall admit to this program.

You do not need to have the Pre-Nursing Core coursework completed until the end of the previous spring term prior to fall admission to the program. No TEAS is required for the LVN to BSN.

If not already a current CSUSM student, you must also apply for admission to the University between Oct. 1 - Nov. 30.

Application Instructions

You must apply to the School of Nursing between Oct. 1 - Nov. 30, one year in advance, for our Fall admission cycle.  Applicants who meet the minimum requirements must pay $100.00 skills fee and pass the LVN-BSN Skills Assessment prior to entry to the program. Be sure to submit all required materials by the Submittal Deadlines (Oct. 1 through July 2) to prevent voiding your application to the LVN-BSN program.

If you want confirmation of our receipt of submitted materials to the School of Nursing, you will need to follow the instructions under our "Mail/Drop Off/ Contact Instructions". 

For students who are applying for entry to the University to pursue a second Bachelor's degree, see University Admissions and Instructions.
