I was wondering if anyone knows what types of bsn programs in ca are good? For instance, is CSU Fresno better or Bakersfield? and what are the pros and cons with the different CSU programs?

What do you mean by "better"?  In my experience all CSU nursing programs are respected.  You can look at the CA BRN website to compare NCLEX pass rates at the different schools.  The CSU that is best is the one that accepts you.  : )

In order to compare what programs are "better" than others, you should get as much information regarding post-graduation employment rate, NCLEX pass rate (pass rates from all programs that prepare their students for the NCLEX are available to the public online from the California Board of Registered Nursing),

Where their clinicals are held (what hospitals), as well as the number of students per clinical rotation there are. If there are large/hiring/quality hospitals they have clinical partnerships with, sometimes connections can be made and employment can be found that way. Some universities such as CSULB even recruit nurses directly from their cohort. Class size is also important depending on if you desire individualized attention from professors. 

I've also found using Niche online to be helpful in initiating where schools rank from the student perspective. 

Hope this helps!
