Hello. I'm about to graduate from my ADN program at a California Community College and would like to pursue a BSN. The main objective of my BSN is to obtain a Public Health Certificate in California. As part of the California Board of Registered Nursing's Public Health requirement, BSN graduates need to have 90 clinical hours in public health.
I know that all of the CSU RN-BSN programs will give me the required clinical hours, but none of them are taking applications for Fall, 2013 and it appears that the earliest I could start most of them would be Fall, 2014.
I have found plenty of NLNAC/CCNE approved online RN-BSN programs but have not yet found any with clinical components.
Can anyone help me out?
Also, if there is anyone out there that has a public health certificate in California but received their BSN out of state, I would be very interested in hearing how you did it.
