Dear Visitor and Prospective Student

Welcome to the School of Nursing at the California State University, Long Beach!  The student is the center of our focus,where diversity, internationalism and transculturalism in student and faculty are sought, valued and nurtured. Our graduates are much sought after for employment.

We educate professional nurses at the Baccalaureate level to practice in collaborative or leadership roles in hospitals, clinics and community health care agencies, and at the Masters degree level, students are prepared for advanced practice roles such as, nurse practitioners, nurse educators, nurse executives and leaders in nursing.  Our Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program is a consortium style program offered with CSU Fullerton and CSU Los Angeles.  It prepares advanced practice nurses to assume faculty positions in schools of nursing and to become evidence based expert clinicians who improve patient care in varied healthcare agencies.

The School of Nursing is nationally and internationally recognized for its excellence in nursing education and quality of its faculty. All our nursing programs have been awarded full national accreditation by the Commission of Collegiate Nursing Education of the American Association of Colleges of Nursing and state accreditation by the California Board of Registered Nursing.

Thank you for your interest in our Nursing Program. We look forward to having you visit our campus. We hope that our website will provide answers to your inquiries. If you have any other questions, please call (562) 985-4463.

Cordially Yours,
