CSUDH Vs. CSUF RN-BSN online program

  1. 2
    I'm currently a transfer student from a community college in LA. Would anyone please tell me how competitive the CSU Fullerton, and CSUDH RN- BSN Program are?... I'm just trying to gauge my chances of getting in.

    Also, some people told me they preferred different online schools since the program in CSUF isn't completely online, and it's very hard to work while attending school.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    I just finished my BSN with CSUDH. I enjoyed the program, the teachers were challenging and very flexible most of the time, ALWAYS supportive! When you get to the clinical components, you will need to find an agency local to you that will allow you to complete your hours but you will get a lot of notification emails reminding you to start the process. There are lists of agencies with their locations and contact information available, and there is a standard process for your to complete if you'd like to have the school contract with a new agency.

    All-in-All, I 100% recommend the program! I have no experience with CSUF so I can't help you in that regard. But CSUDH allows the option to do in-class or online courses, so it's up to you. I never had a class where I HAD to complete live in-class.

    As long as you've completed all the pre-requisites and requirements you should have no problem enrolling, just make sure to get everything in by the deadlines.

    Good Luck

    Hello, Im about to finish my ADN at a local cc in so cal. I was thinking about attending CSUDH RN-BSN program. Did you finish statistics before applying or did you complete the statistics course during the program (BSN 405).

    Thanks for responding on this thread.

    I am in my second semster at a local JC completing an ADN, and I presently attend Dominguez (concurrently) for a BA in Interdisciplinary Studies/Environmental Studies; so I definitely don't want to have to go anywhere else or to more classes!

    Thank you for the information, and I look foward to next spring when I can apply!

    Also, i know you can go at your own pace, but @gmarie15, how long did it take you to finish the BSN?

    Thanks in advance

    I took statistics at my local cc (pierce) and CSUDH accepted it, but I think they changed the policy and will no longer accept statistics from them. I can't be 100% sure but I think I recall an email from them stating that... I would check with your contact, just run the question by them... If not, you can take it with them. I think they may have changed the policy because it was causing too many students to come up short on units prior to graduation. Hope this helps
