This is a new BSN to DNP program at CSULB starting in Fall 2023.  Information is available at CSULB Nursing Website.

The University also has a University Thesis Office which verifies that each thesis meets the format criteria prescribed by the department or degree prgram and by the University and that it meets all University procedual requirements for theses.

The Thesis Office conducts periodic workshops on how to prepare a thesis at CSULB. The University Library also provides some special services for thesis students like extended loans and study cubicles.
