CSUSB Master of Science in Nursing Program: Meeting the Needs of the Community

General

Program Description

The Department of Nursing offers a hybrid online graduate program leading to the Master of Science in Nursing. Every student competes a series of core courses and selects from one of three concentrations/specializations: Advanced Community/Public Health Nursing, Population Health for Clinical Nurse Leaders, and Nurse Educator. Students choosing full-time plans of study typically complete the degree in two to two-and-one half academic years. Part-time progression is possible, as well.

The program is offered in a hybrid format, combining online delivery of most course lessons with a limited number of face-to-face sessions. Face-to-face class sessions may be scheduled at either the San Bernardino or the Palm Desert campus, in an effort to equitably serve graduate students from both the Inland Empire and Coachella Valley.

Clinical practicums are arranged to correspond with practicum learning objectives. Attention is paid to finding practicum locations as close to students’ cities of residence as possible, though practicum placements can only be arranged in agencies and facilities with whom CSUSB has formal affiliation contracts.
