Do I have a chance at CSU Nursing Programs for Fall 2024?

Students General Students


Hey guys, 

This is my first post on here! I am applying to CSU nursing programs for Fall 2024, and am in the process of taking Physiology (last pre-req) and preparing for the TEAS. I'm from the Bay Area and am attending community college locally. I was wondering what my chances are for transferring to CSUEB, SJSU, SFSU, CSUF, CSUS, and SDSU? 

- bilingual (seal of biliteracy)

- CNA (will have 200 hours of work experience by the time applications are due)

- completed all co-reqs

GPA: 4.0 (projected) 

TEAS: will be taking it at the end of October for the 1st time. Super nervous, any tips are appreciated!

Your chances are excellent.  Why are you so concerned?  Your GPA is outstanding and being bilingual is a huge asset.  At many state colleges/universities, nursing programs are impacted, so that would be the only hurdle, but there is nothing you can do about that.  Apply to multiple schools like you are doing.  Also consider the UC schools like UC Davis, UCLA, UC Irvine, etc.  Your grades are good enough.  You may get enough financial aid to cover the extra cost.

Also, don't rule out private schools like Univ of SF and Univ of San Diego Hahn School of Nursing.  Sometimes private schools will provide more financial aid, so you won't pay anymore than for a state school.

Good luck
