Graduate Programs

Accelerated Bachelor's of Science in Nursing

The ABSN program is a rigorous 15 month program that requires full-time status, and is for selected non-RN students who hold a bachelor’s degree in a field other than nursing. Successful completion of the program grants a BSN degree and enables the individual to sit for the California RN licensing exam (NCLEX-RN). This program also offers the individual the opportunity to continue directly onto the Master of Science degree in Nursing program as long as the following conditions are met; (a) the student must complete the prescribed series of basic nursing courses with an overall GPA of 3.0 with no course grades lower than a "C" and (b) they must take and pass the NCLEX-RN
