University Majors

San Francisco State University
Nursing B.S.

The Bachelor of Science in Nursing 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.

The School of Nursing offers prelicensure (RN) bachelor`s degree programs at the San Francisco campus and in the Sequoia Health District (the Sequoia Hospital/SF State Baccalaureate Nursing Program at Caņada College). The Sequoia/Caņada program is supported, in part, by a grant from the Sequoia Health District with additional support from the San Mateo Community College District, Sequoia Hospital and the CSU. The course of study is the same for each although admission requirements vary. Students are encouraged to explore the specific requirements on the web site as they vary for each site and from year to year.

Applicants to the baccalaureate nursing program may be current students at SF State or transfer students. As freshmen applicants are not admitted to the university as nursing majors, students can be admitted as Pre-nursing or to an alternate major. The Pre-nursing designation does not guarantee admission to the nursing major. All students applying to the nursing program must meet the minimum University requirements (see earlier sections of the Bulletin) and satisfy specific prerequisites for the program.
