    Eligibility for Licensure


    If the student receives an AS in Nursing at the completion of the fourth semester in the pilot (1st Semester Senior Year), the student will be eligible to take the NCLEX examination as a graduate of a nursing program. Students in the CSUS baccalaureate program currently are eligible to sit for licensure at the same point, however, they are discouraged from taking the exam as a non-graduate because of potential reciprocity issues. It would defeat the purpose of the proposal and the socialization process desired if students took the licensure examination and postponed completion of the final semester in the pilot. Students in the pilot will be strongly advised to complete the 5 semester sequence before taking the exam.

    Found this, anyone that graduated from Sac State know this to be true?
