ADN-BSN Collaborative Program


Through a collaboration with 10 area community colleges, the ADN-BSN Collaborative Program provides a seamless transition from the Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) to the Bachelors of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree. Students accepted into this program will have completed pre-requisite courses at their respective community colleges and gained a solid foundation in nursing, enabling them to pass the NCLEX-RN exam and, ultimately, complete their BSN degree at Cal State LA in an accelerated format.
