Bachelor of Science in Nursing

As the first college to offer a BSN in 1916, we remain committed to ensuring our graduates are empowered to think critically, advocate for patients and the profession and raise the standard of health care—in any role they choose.


Our direct-admission Bachelor of Science in Nursing leverages technology and innovation, embraces equity and inclusion, promotes interprofessional collaboration and enables experiential learning, so that when students graduate, they're ready to lead.

As part of the UC Academic Health Center (medical campus), our clinical partners include a Level I trauma center, Level III obstetric unit, the nation's No. 2 pediatric hospital and multiple outpatient surgery centers and community hospitals.

High school students apply for direct admission to the bachelor's program. Transition and transfer students apply to join the program as a sophomore.
