University Majors


California State University, Chico
Nursing B.S. General Option

There is great potential for nursing in the rapidly changing health care system. Nursing offers a variety of opportunities for service to society, for personal growth, and for professional development. Nurses deliver health care to people in hospitals, extended care facilities, private homes, public health, schools and other community settings. National and international data reflect an ongoing shortage of nurses, particularly for nurses prepared at baccalaureate and master`s levels. Nursing graduates are highly marketable in a variety of nursing positions. CSU, Chico graduates are prepared to be the future leaders in nursing and are well regarded in the nursing community. The BSN programs are approved/accredited by the California Board of Registered Nursing, and the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).

Only forty students are admitted to the General Option BSN program each semester. Because of high student demand, nursing has been declared an impacted area of study and special requirements for application to an impacted program apply (see Admissions). You must apply to the University during the first month of the initial filing period (November for the following fall semester and August for the following spring semester). A supplemental nursing application must be submitted by March 1 (for the fall) or by November 1 (for the spring). Special selection criteria are used to determine which students will be admitted. These criteria are available from the School of Nursing (Vesta Holt Hall 369, 530-898-5891) and on the School of Nursing website.
