Applications from RN's outside the tri-county region will be accepted beginning in August, 2014. Applicants must apply to CSUMB (via Mentor, AND to the nursing program; and have completed the "golden four" required by CSU.  Upon completion of all general education and program requirements, students receive a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from CSUMB.

CSUMB also has a collaboration ADN-BSN degree offering, in conjunction with established Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) programs in four community colleges in the tri-county area: Monterey Peninsula College, Hartnell College, Cabrillo College and Gavilan College.  Students begin their education at one of the four partner regional community colleges, spend time in a “blended” learning environment while completing their ADN studies at the Community College and CSUMB. Students will receive an associate’s degree from their community college and a bachelor of science in nursing from CSUMB.  Entry into this track is only possible through one of the four regional Community College nursing programs and students are required to be dually enrolled.

We do not offer a general 4-year entry level BSN program at this campus.
