BSN Program Details
The Bachelor of Science in Nursing curriculum is for registered nurses who are adult learners whose time, lifestyles or work schedules make it difficult to complete a traditional course of study in residence on a campus. All BSN courses, including clinical role performance courses, are offered online through the Internet to deliver the curriculum wherever and whenever the student is ready to learn. The courses must be completed within the semester, but students have the flexibility of accessing the courses at the time and place most convenient to them for completing assignments by the due dates. Some online courses may require students to take part in onsite class, either on campus or at selected sites throughout California.

1. Design competent, patient centered professional nursing care for individuals, families and populations across the health continuum in a variety of community based settings and institutions, emphasizing patient safety and quality.
