The California Southern University School of Nursing
CalSouthern’s School of Nursing offers 100-percent online nursing degrees at the bachelor’s and master’s levels. The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) is an RN to BSN program that is ideal for registered nurses who have yet to earn their BSN, especially in light of the healthcare industry’s Magnet Recognition Program requiring that 80 percent of Magnet-status hospitals’ staff nurses hold a BSN or higher by the year 2020. The Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) is designed for nurses who aspire to leadership or educational positions within the healthcare industry, which is increasingly requiring nurses at more senior levels of management to have a master’s degree.
CalSouthern’s School of Nursing provides a strong foundation of nursing theory, because an understanding of theory gives context and meaning to the tasks nurses perform on a daily basis. Building upon that foundation, students will learn the latest practical skills and knowledge required in today’s practice.
Unique to CalSouthern, the School of Nursing’s degree programs are multi-disciplinary, incorporating courses from the Schools of Behavioral Sciences and Business, which enables students to tailor their programs and develop highly specialized expertise, making them more competitive in the workplace and helping them to achieve their career goals.
