The Bachelor of Science degree prepares students for entry-level positions in professional nursing practice. Graduates are prepared to take a national licensure examination (NCLEX) to become registered nurses and for positions in maternity, pediatrics, medical-surgical nursing, gerontology, psychiatric/mental health, community health, long-term care and home-care. In addition, they are eligible for public health nursing certification in California upon licensure as a registered nurse. For RNs, the Bachelor of Science degree builds upon previous nursing education and experience for professional role development.
