*The RN-BS in Nursing Program is for licensed California Registered Nurses, who completed a regionally accredited program.

The Imperial Valley Campus RN-BS in Nursing Program has been available since July 2007. Registered Nurses with either an Associate Degree in Nursing or a Diploma in Nursing are eligible to apply.

Graduates of SDSU School of Nursing hold excellent reputations in the extended medical community. Students are provided opportunities to acquire knowledge beyond licensure to cover concepts in professionalism, assessment, evidence based practice, leadership, community health, and the ability to expand their nursing practice.

The School of Nursing was awarded a HRSA Imperial Valley Consortium-Nursing Workforce Development grant award July 1, 2013. In addition, the School received a President’s Leadership Fund Award December 2015 to open the Imperial Valley Nurse Wellness Center.
