BSN programs in so. cal

  1. I don't have a degree and I'm not yet a nurse. I am looking for schools in the S. California area that offer BSN program. By the time I apply I will have an associates in "pre-nursing" which is basically a degree that my local junior college offers for those who are planning to enter BSN programs in our state, TX. It guarantees that the person has completed all pre-reqs for the majority of schools in this area. I guess that's neither here nor there. I'm just looking for some names of schools. Obviously, I already have UCLA on the list.

    I've looked online an I keep coming up with ADN, LVN and online RN to BSN options.

    Here are a couple of schools with BSN programs that I know of here in San Diego, CA:

    San Diego State University
    Cal State San Marcos (coming soon)
    National University
    Point Loma Nazarene
    University of San Diego

    Hope this helps!

    Thank you for responding. I'm sorry, I should have clarified that I'm looking in the Los Angeles area.

    CSULB (Long Beach)
    CSUSB (San Bernadino)
    Loma Linda University

    Hope those help.

    Mt. Saint Mary College in LA is a good, but expensive program.

    UCLA doesn't have a BSN program (I believe they ended it about 8-10 years ago to concentrate on the MSN program)

    My school Cal State Univ. Los Angeles also has a BSN program. Their NCLEX passing rate for the past few years is awesome.

    Of course since there's way too many people applying than can be admitted, they composed "supplemental criteria". I can let you know what they are if you're interested. Just let me know!
