RN to BSN pathway
The RN-BSN Pathway is for students who possess an active, unrestricted California Registered Nurse (RN) License.
These students may be employed in the community as nurses and wish to pursue their BSN degree. The courses can be completed in 3 semesters of full-time enrollment or 5 semesters of part-time enrollment.
The nursing program’s required coursework builds upon prior knowledge in nursing and general education. The courses focus on communication, global health, community health, policy, and research to strengthen critical-thinking and leadership skills.
Students will receive hands-on experience when placed at partner agencies in Monterey, Santa Cruz, and San Benito Counties and if enrolled through the Cuesta-CSUMB partnership, in San Luis Obispo county.
