, PA,
At California State University, Fresno, we offer a bachelor degree in Nursing. The mission of the School of Nursing is to offer quality nursing education to undergraduate and graduate nursing students. This education prepares nurses to make clinical decisions based on theory and research. 

About

As life-long learners, graduates are prepared to deliver quality health care for increasingly diverse populations. Graduates will lead, supervise, delegate, manage, and evaluate care outcomes, as well as demonstrate the ability to act as consumer advocates in promoting wellness and facilitating change.

The scope of nursing practice is changing significantly. The professional nurse uses theory and research-based knowledge to provide direct and indirect care to individuals, families, groups, and communities.

In the role as designer, manager, and coordinator of care, nurses collaborate with patients and interdisciplinary care teams.

The Department of Nursing at California State University, Fresno, offers a program that leads to the Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing (BSN). The degree requires a minimum of 125 semester units, and the nursing curriculum sequence covers six semesters.
