RN to BSN Program Details

The RN to BSN program at California State University San Marcos is a part-time program designed for the working RN. Upon completion of this program students will receive a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing (BSN). The BSN degree allows individuals to assume leadership roles within the clinical setting and establishes a foundation for graduate-level studies. The program is designed for students who currently possess an ADN degree from a regionally accredited institution.

The program is designed to fulfill the needs of the working RN. Classes are offered one-day per week and all course work required for degree completion may be completed within 6 academic terms. The program utilizes a cohort model, admitting 24 students per location every Fall Semester. Students pursuing this program option may take classes at the main-campus, or via our satellite campus in Temecula.

MSN Program Details

The Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) is designed to be completed part-time in 2.5 years depending on whether summer session is elected. Full-time status and use of summers would shorten the program to 2 years.

The mission of the graduate program in nursing at California State University San Marcos is to provide superior graduate education to qualified students, leading to the Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) degree. Our objective is to prepare nurses in generalist and advanced practice roles for positions in the health care industry, community or public health agencies, and academia, and for continued study at the doctoral level.

The MSN program includes a strong foundation in theory and research inquiry. The School of Nursing acknowledges the responsibility to address the nursing and health care needs in populations and communities around the globe, including those who are underserved and vulnerable. The graduate program builds on the knowledge gained at the baccalaureate level and promotes nursing scholarship at the local, state, national and international level through research, service and practice. Values, ethics and multicultural perspectives are heavily embedded within the graduate program. Cultural sensitivity and competence are emphasized in the curriculum as students interface with a diverse population both professionally and in the care of clients, families and communities.

RN to MSN Program Details

The Accelerated RN to MSN program is designed to be completed part-time in 4-years, including summers.
