- Dec 31, '10 by acupofgasI completed my RN to BSN online through California State University Dominguez Hills and start a MSN CRNA program in January. Please note: This CSUDH online BSN program is for RNs wanting to get their BSN. It is a degree awarded the same as at any other CSU campus BSN.
It is accreditation that is important. So if you go the online route make sure it has the appropriate national accreditation. For example: all CSUDH nursing programs are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE), the Board of Registered Nursing (BRN), and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).

It's regional accreditation that you want to look for (it's devided by geographic location, hense the term 'regional'), it's the Gold standard, 'national' accreditation is not universally accepted.
