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(c).
