Department of Nursing
The Department of Nursing and Health Sciences offers an undergraduate program which leads to the Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Nursing. The program is designed to prepare a nurse generalist: one who is able to apply nursing knowledge and provide culturally sensitive care to clients from a range of socioeconomic backgrounds. The curriculum integrates general and professional education to prepare a professional nurse who is also a well-educated citizen. Graduates of the program have the requisite knowledge and skills to pursue graduate study in nursing.
The curriculum consists of two years of pre-nursing requirements and eight quarters of nursing courses. However, nine quarters are frequently needed to complete all nursing courses because of clinical space limitations. The prerequisite courses may be completed at Cal State, East Bay or by taking equivalent courses at another college or university. Nursing courses have concomitant laboratory activities both on campus and in local hospitals, community health agencies, child care centers, and retirement communities. Students are responsible for providing their own transportation to clinical facilities. Expenses for clinical courses include the purchase of uniforms, stethoscopes, malpractice insurance, personal health insurance, laboratory equipment, course syllabi, and so forth.
The program is accredited by the State of California Board of Registered Nursing (Tel: 916-322-3350) and by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (202-887-6791). Upon completion of the nursing sequence, the student is qualified to take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN) and apply for the California Public Health Nursing Certificate.
