School of Nursing

Dear Visitor and Prospective Student,

Welcome to the School of Nursing at California State University, Long Beach!

The MSN program will be transitioning to BSN to DNP program Fall of 2023. Hence, the MSN program as well as the post-master's certificate programs will no longer be offered after Fall 2022.

We have concluded the last admissions cycle for the MSN and post-master certificate programs Fall of 2022.

The information session dates and time regarding the BSN to DNP Program will be posted on the School of Nursing website soon so please wait for further information to be updated.

We apologize for any inconvenience.

Thank you for your interest in our nursing programs. We look forward to having you visit our campus. We hope that our website will provide answers to your questions.

Cordially Yours,
School of Nursing

Notification to Nursing Students: Professional Licensure and Certification in other States or Territories 

CSULB programs for professions that required licensure or certification are intended to prepare the student for California licensure and certification requirements. Admission into nursing programs that required licensure and certification does not guarantee that students will obtain licensure or a certificate. Licensure and certification requirements are set by agencies that are not controlled by or affiliated with the California State University, and licensure and certification requirements can change at any time.  

CSULB has not determined whether its nursing programs meet other states’ or territories’ educational or professional requirements for licensure and certification.  Students planning to pursue licensure or certification in other states are responsible for determining whether, if they complete the CSULB program, they will meet their state’s or territory’s requirement for licensure.  This disclosure is made pursuant to 34 CFR §668.43 (a(5)(v)(C).
