ADN - BSN collaborative pathways

The Associates Degree in Nursing (ADN) to Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) is a collaborative, dual-enrollment program between community college partners and CSUMB that facilitates seamless academic progression to BSN degree.

Students must be enrolled in the ADN program at the community college and successfully complete the first and second ADN semesters before starting the first CSUMB summer session 1. Collaborative program students who successfully meet the CSUMB program requirements will matriculate and transition to CSUMB after graduation from the ADN. This Collaborative enables the ADN RN to earn a BSN degree in 12-15 months after graduating from the community college.
