Nursing and Health Studies Program

Required RN-to-BSN New Student Orientation


The RN-to-BSN program has a required new nursing-only student orientation in June (for new students starting Summer quarter) and September (for new students starting Autumn Quarter).  A sample schedule, from the Autumn 2011 orientation, is available here.

Pre-BSN students starting Winter or Spring quarters have to attend a required new general transfer student orientation before their start quarter before they are allowed to register for classes. New Pre-BSN students starting Summer or Autumn quarters attend new student orientation with the BSN students.  At such time as Pre-BSN students are admitted to the BSN program, they may attend all or part of the new nursing student orientation with their new colleagues.
