The BSN (Bachelor of Science in Nursing) Pre-Licensure program is for freshman and transfer students who need to complete prerequisite courses or may be ready to apply to the Nursing major but are not licensed nurses.
Students will be equipped to be compassionate health care providers and leaders in the Nursing profession. On campus, students will receive simulated training in two state-of-the-art Nursing Simulation Labs opened in fall 2015 and fall 2017 respectively.
Students take part in clinical training at leading partner health care facilities including St. Jude Medical Center, Orange County Global Medical Center, St. Joseph Health, Children's Hospital of Orange County, Orange Coast Memorial, Anaheim Global Medical Center, and South Coast Global Medical Center. Following completion of the bachelor’s program, these students will sit for the NCLEX-RN exam to become licensed nurses.
