The first GE course taken which fulfills a GE category requirement will be used for the Pre-NRSG GPA calculation. Quantitative Reasoning: STATS 108 Oral Communication: COMM 110, 130, 132, 171, 331, 335, 441I College Composition: ASAM 100, B/ST 100, CHLS104, ENGL 100 Critical Thinking: ASAM 190, B/ST 150, COMM 131, 131W, CWL 161, CECS 100, ETEC 171, ENGL102, HIST101, PHIL 170, POSC105, PSY 130, UHP100 Grades: All prerequisite course grades must be C or higher (a grade of C- will not be accepted). To apply to the program you must have a minimum GPA of 3.0 in the Natural Sciences prerequisite courses, and a minimum GPA of 3.0 in the General Education prerequisite courses. However, a science GPA of 3.0 is not competitive as the average science GPA for the Fall 2013 admits was 3.85 and for General Education admits was Repeated Courses: For admission into the basic nursing program, calculation of the grade point average for prerequisite courses repeated at CSULB or transferred into CSULB from another college or university will follow CSULB policy as described in the annual Undergraduate and Graduate Catalog Course in Progress: One course can be in progress at the time you submit an application. Admission is contingent upon your completing the course with a grade of C or better. Admission GPA for an in-progress course will be calculated as a grade of C. Co-Requisite Courses: Psychology 100 and Sociology 100 must be taken prior to taking Nursing 341 (your 3 rd Nursing Program semester). If you have not taken them prior to admission, you will be required to take them your 1 st and 2 nd Nursing Program semesters or you will not be allowed to advance to 3 rd semester program courses. Nursing 302, Nursing 305 and Nutrition 339 will be taken during your first semester if you have not completed them prior to admission. Application Procedure Attend a Student Information Session: Before submitting an application for admission to the nursing program, you should attend a information session where the application process will be explained. Time will be allotted for questions. See information session dates on the front page. Apply to the University as a Nursing major: You must apply to and meet the university admission requirements prior to applying to the nursing program. Applications may apply on-line at Submit one set of official transcripts from all college level work to the University. For further information on University transfer requirements, please go to CSULB s transfer website: Applying to the School of Nursing This is a separate application from your admission to the University. Complete the nursing application and submit it with a set of official transcripts for all college work. Course Equivalencies For science courses NOT taken at CSULB, please check to make sure the course(s) you have taken are equivalent. For most local community colleges and other local colleges you can check this at or on our science prerequisite chart located on our website. For college courses not found at assist.org or on our chart, please contact Monalisa Ward at Course in Progress: Attach any proof of enrollment for your course in progress.

It is advisable to sign up early to guarantee applicants can take the test on the date they want to. If registering by mail, please follow the mail in deadline listed on the TEAS application form. Also applicants may sign up in the Nursing office in Room 8, one day before the test date if space is still available. The cost of the test is $ There is no limit on how many times applicants can take the TEAS; however, it is the applicants responsibility to indicate which test date we are to use to calculate applicants rating. Applicants must score at least 70% to be eligible to submit an application. However, a TEAS score of 70% is not competitive as the average TEAS score for the Fall 2013 admits was 86.52%.
4 Selection Criteria A personal profile will be developed for each applicant with points earned from: GPA in the prerequisite science 4 points maximum courses (minimum 3.0 gpa) GPA in the prerequisite general 2 points maximum education courses (minimum 3.0 gpa) General Assessment Test (TEAS) 2 points maximum (minimal score 70%) TEAS Math Score 2 points maximum Candidates with the highest cumulative scores, based upon their personal profile, must participate in a mandatory faculty interview.

Notification of Admission Status: Seventy (72) students are admitted each Fall and Spring semester. Candidates will be notified by the School of Nursing of their admission status by mail by the 4th week of April and November. Alternates: An alternate list will be selected. An alternate is admitted to replace a candidate who withdraws from the program before the end of the first week of the semester. Because there is no waiting list, alternates not admitted will need to re-apply to be considered for admission the next semester. Instructions for Candidates Who Have Submitted a Supplemental Nursing Application for a Previous Term: Applicants will need to fill out another application, but they do not need to resubmit any supplemental documents that we already have on file (TEAS score, transcripts) unless there has been a change since the last application. However, applicants should contact the nursing office to find out how they can become for competitive before they submit a new application. Trimester Program: In addition to our traditional six semester-three year program, the School of Nursing offers students who have been accepted into the program the option of entering a trimester program that can be completed in just two years. The curriculum in this program is exactly the same with the exception that the course work is scheduled over the summer. Selection for this option will be done by lottery at the mandatory new student orientation. Additional Information General Education: Applicants do not have to complete their general education requirements before they enter the nursing program. A few of the nursing prerequisites courses also meet general education requirements. Health Requirements: Upon admission to the program, all students will be required to pass a departmental health examination and will be evaluated on their ability to meet the School s Essential Performance Guidelines. For more information, see Undergraduate Handbook online at Background Checks: Students who are accepted into the program must submit to the School of Nursing a criminal background check and potential drug screening.

5 COLLEGE OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES California State University, Long Beach Academic Progress for Pre-Nursing Majors Effective Fall 2013 Rev. 03/13/2013 Bachelor of Science in Nursing Basic (NRSGBS01) In order to be considered for admission to the Nursing major, CSULB students must be declared as pre-nursing students. Pre-nursing students must complete a series of prerequisite courses: written communication, oral communication, critical thinking, STAT 108, BIOL 207, BIOL 208, CHEM 140, and MICR 200. Each course must be completed with a C or better grade; when all prerequisites are completed the GPA for the prerequisite courses must be B or better (3.0 or better). Applicants to the nursing major are normally admitted by the time they reach junior standing and must apply before they have earned 75 Timely Graduation units. Students who have earned 75 or more Timely Graduation units at CSULB are not eligible to apply to Nursing. Pre-nursing students should note that withdrawing or repeating courses to improve their grades or GPA will result in poor academic progress and will likely make them ineligible for admission. Academic Progress Rules for Pre-Nursing Majors (NRSGPR00U1) Effective Fall 2011, Pre-nursing majors must complete the following requirements within four semesters of being admitted as a Pre-Nursing major. Students who declare Pre-Nursing in their sophomore year will need to complete these requirements more quickly. Some students may need to take courses during Summer Session to meet these requirements. Pre-nursing students who have not met these Academic Progress Rules must declare a new major or meet with an academic advisor to determine if the student s performance in courses merits an additional semester. Students who persistently fail to meet the Academic Progress Rules will be required to declare a new major.

At the end of the fourth semester, Pre-Nursing students must have a C grade or better in BIOL 207, BIOL 208, CHEM 140, and MICR 200 as well as a combined GPA of 3.0 or better in these prerequisite courses. Current Students Wishing to Declare Pre-Nursing Major Current CSULB students wishing to declare the Pre-Nursing major must meet the following requirements by the end of their second semester to be considered for the Pre-Nursing program. Students who are required to enroll in a developmental math class (MAPB 1, 7, or 11) may be given a third semester to complete the requirements. These requirements include the completion of the following classes with a grade of C or better with a combined GPA in these four classes of 3.0 or better and an overall GPA of 3.0 or better. Written Communication (A1), Oral Communication (A2), Critical Thinking (A3), STAT 108 (B2) Students will be required to meet with the Pre-Nursing advisor before a change of major to Pre-Nursing will be approved. Applying to the Nursing Program By no later than the beginning of the fifth semester, Pre-Nursing students must apply to become Nursing majors. Candidates must complete a General Assessment Test and should contact the school of Nursing to learn how to take the General Assessment Test. In reviewing applications, a personal profile is developed for each applicant based on GPA in prerequisite courses and the General Assessment Test. The largest weight in the profile is derived from the prerequisite science courses GPA, with typical grade point averages for these courses being 3.50 or higher and no grades below a C. Candidates with the highest profile scores are selected for admission. It is anticipated that about seventy-two (72) students will be admitted each Fall and Spring semester from hundreds of applicants. Pre-Nursing students with an ELM score that places them in MAPB 1 or MAPB 7 or MAPB 11 may petition for an additional semester. Please review the following Advising Guidelines to ensure Pre-Nursing students meet the deadlines stated in the Academic Progress Rules for Pre-Nursing Majors.
6 Pre-Nursing Advising Guidelines Fall 2013 Rev. 03/13/ Effective Fall 2011, students who have fulfilled a prerequisite GE category or science (grade of C or better) can no longer take a second class in that prerequisite GE category or retake a science class at a community college in an attempt to raise their grade and GPA for admission to the Nursing program. Only a passing grade (C or better) in the first course taken in the category will be considered for admission to Nursing. 2. Students who completed a second class in a prerequisite GE category or repeated a science class prior to Fall 2011 will be allowed to post their highest grade on their application. 3. Students will still be allowed to repeat a failed class for grade forgiveness as stated in the CSULB Repetition of Courses Policy. Pre-nursing students should note that withdrawing or repeating courses to improve their grades or GPA will result in a failure to meet the Academic Progress Rules and will likely make pre-nursing students ineligible for admission to Nursing. 4. Students should not be advised to fail or withdraw from a class if they are earning a C so they can repeat it for a better grade. Students repeating classes take seats away from other students attempting to get in a class for the first time and results in poor academic progress. A grade of C will not disqualify a student from the Nursing program as long as both the prerequisite GE and Science GPA is 3.0 or higher. 5. Students will no longer be required to submit a copy of their high school transcripts for AP classes. Students who have AP credit in ENG 100 or STAT 108 will now have the prerequisite GE GPA determined by the grades earned in the other prerequisite GE categories. AP credit in any other math class will no longer be accepted by Nursing. 6. Students do not need to take any additional science classes other than the four required prerequisites (CHEM 140, BIOL 207, BIOL 208, & MICR 200) to satisfy GE requirements. The seventeen (17) required prerequisite science units will satisfy both the Life Science and Physical Science (B1) requirements. 7. Students should take PSY 100 & SOC 100 to meet the Social Sciences and Citizenship (D2) GE requirement. 8. If Lifelong Learning & Self Development (E) has not been completed students should take NUTR132 as it is good preparation for NUTR Students should be advised to take STAT 108 to meet the Mathematics/Quantitative (B2). 10. Students should be encouraged to complete as many GE requirements as possible prior to starting the Nursing program so they can concentrate on their Nursing classes once they are accepted into the program. 11. Pre-nursing students may only apply to Nursing twice. Applicants to the nursing major are normally admitted by the time they reach junior standing and must apply before they have earned 75 Timely Graduation units (including In-progress units). Students who have earned 75 or more Timely Graduation Units at CSULB are not eligible to apply to Nursing. Pre-nursing students should note that withdrawing or repeating courses to improve their grades or GPA will result in poor academic progress and will likely make them ineligible for admission.

You may submit an application with only one prerequisite course in progress. You must receive a grade of C or higher in the course that is in progress to be admitted. 3. Is there a waiting list to enter your nursing program? We do not have a waiting list. We use a point system to find the best qualified students for admission each semester 4. If I applied last year and was not selected, does my application automatically get considered for next semester? No! You must submit a new application for each admission cycle. 5. Can international students apply? The program can only admit 2 international students a semester to the Basic/Trimester BSN Programs. The top two international students will be offered admission into the program. The Entry Level MSN Program is for California residents only. \ 6. AB 540 Students At this time, we cannot consider AB 540 students for admission into our Nursing Program. Nonresident students meeting the criteria (for AB 540 status) will be exempted from the payment of nonresident tuition, but they will not be classified as California residents. They continue to be nonresidents. (Exemption request form) 7. Can out of state residents apply? No. At this time, due to impaction, only California state residents can be considered for admission. 8. Can I apply to both the Basic BSN program and the Entry Level MSN? No. We can only process one application at a time from an applicant. 9. Is it difficult to get into the program? Yes! More students apply to the CSULB s School of Nursing than there are spaces available. PLAN AHEAD! The higher your grades, the better your chances are of being admitted to the program. Also, take your prerequisite courses as soon as possible and apply to the School of Nursing when you have completed them or are enrolled in your LAST prerequisite course. 10. How does the School of Nursing select applicants for admission? The Student Affairs Admissions Committee looks at several factors when considering which applicants will be admitted. The criteria for selection out of 10 possible points are: a.) TEAS Assessment Overall Test Score (2 points max) b.) GPA in the science prerequisite courses (4 points max) c.) GPA in the G E prerequisite courses (2 points max) d.) General Assessment Math Score (2 points max) Candidates with the highest cumulative scores, based upon their personal profile, must participate in a mandatory faculty interview. The interviews will be held approximately thirty days after the nursing application deadline. After the interviews, successful candidates will be offered admission into the program. 11 How many students do you accept, and how often are students admitted? We admit 80 students to begin Basic/Trimester BSN classes each fall and spring semester. We admit 48 Entry Level MSN each fall if funding is available. 12. What if I took a prerequisite course at another college or university? Prerequisite courses are listed in the application packet. Many colleges and universities can tell you which transfer to CSULB due to contractual agreements. It is very important that prerequisite courses are equivalent to the CSULB courses listed on the application. Do not assume that the courses you took will be equivalent to CSULB s courses. Also, do not assume a class is an equivalent even if it is accepted by another nursing program. If the course is not listed at assist.org, submit the course syllabus to the School of Nursing for evaluation. 12. Do I have to take the prerequisite courses at CSULB? No. Students may take the prerequisites at any college or university as long as the courses taken are equivalent in content and units to those listed in the application brochure. Many equivalencies are obtained by submitting a course description and course syllabus to our nursing department. 13. Can I take a second GE course in each category to improve my pre-nursing GPA calculation? The first GE course taken which fulfills a GE category requirement will be used for the Pre-NRSG GPA calculation. 14. Do you accept AP English, Calculus, Statistics and Psychology? Yes. Students receive credit that the requirement has been met. However, we calculate students ratings without these courses. 15. Is there a time limit on when I took my prerequisites? Yes. All natural sciences should have been taken within the last five years and social sciences within ten years. 16. If I have more than one prerequisite in progress, can I still apply for admission? No, you can only have one prerequisite in progress on the application deadline date. The course in progress is considered a C for rating calculation.
8 17. What courses can I take after my prerequisite course work is completed? Many students like to get their general education courses out of the way before entering the nursing program. This will allow them to focus on the nursing courses and be ready for graduation as soon as the nursing courses are finished. 18. What GPA do I need to apply to the nursing program? For both the Basic/Trimester and Entry Level MSN, all prerequisite courses must be C or higher. A grade of C- is not acceptable. Students must have a minimum GPA of 3.0 in each of their science and their general education prerequisite courses. However, the science GPA average of the last cohort was The higher the grades the better the applicants chances are of being admitted to the program. The Entry Level MSN applicants must have earned a CUM GPA of 3.0 in their BA/BS or MS/MA degree. 19. How long will it take me to complete the BSN Program? Students admitted to the Basic BSN Program take six semesters to complete the nursing courses. The Trimester program takes 4 semesters and two summers. The Entry Level MSN Program takes 4 semesters. The RN to BSN program takes approximately 4 semesters to complete. 20. Can I attend courses on a part-time basis? For the basic BSN program, each semester is scheduled for 15 or 16 units. Some students take general courses during the summer or winter break to decrease the number of units during the regular semester. If students must be out a semester, the leave of absence procedure must be followed. For the Entry Level MSN program, each semester is scheduled for units. Entry Level MSN students attend summer and winter intersessions. 21. Are there any nursing courses in the evening? Nursing courses are usually offered during the day or early evening. Lecture and lab classes are offered one or two days a week. Clinical classes are offered Monday through Sunday during day or evening shifts. 22. Can I take the state board exam before I graduate?
