Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing

Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing

The Accelerated Bachelors of Science in Nursing Program (ABSN) is for non-RN students who already hold a bachelor’s degree in a field other than nursing. In order to apply, you must have graduated by the end of the presiding fall quarter or semester to apply for that summer's ABSN program. One cohort of students is admitted each year to start their program in June. Students will complete approximately 74 quarter units of study in both didactic and clinical coursework over 15 months of study. Upon completion of the program, students will be awarded the degree of Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Cal State LA. Completion of the degree program enables individuals to sit for the NCLEX examination for RN licensure.

For more information, see Program Details.

This program admits once a year for every Summer term (June). You must check the ABSN application on the School of Nursing Webpage for details regarding the specific deadlines. After applying to the School of Nursing, students who have met the ABSN Program’s academic requirements will be contacted by the ABSN Program coordinator or designee with the instructions on how/when to apply to the university.
