California State University ADN-to-BSN Nursing Roadmaps
Learn how to start with a California Community College associate degree in nursing (ADN) and complete a bachelor's degree in nursing (BSN) at the California State University. Completion of an ADN degree does not guarantee admission to a CSU BSN degree program.
Why Choose a BSN Degree Program?

Build on your professional experience, expand your professional opportunities, and change the way you think about nursing practice.
- Expand your career opportunities
Open the door to teaching, management, professional specialization, and advanced nursing degrees.
- Improve your marketability
Many hospitals seeking Magnet® status recruit BSN-trained nurses.
- Compete for higher pay
Qualify when higher-paying nursing jobs require a BSN degree and RN experience.
