APPLICANTS to the BSN PROGRAM, PLEASE NOTE: The CSULB School of Nursing is evaluating CHEM 140 as a required pre-requisite for the nursing program. All applicants should use to determine if their course is equivalent to CSULB's CHEM 140 requirement. Any students who have completed a college chemistry course (general, inorganic, organic, biochemistry, or integrated with a lab) will be considered through Spring 2025. If admitted to the program with a non-articulated course, the School of Nursing will determine if the course can be used for graduation.
