Faculty Information

The mission of the California Baptist University College of Nursing is to educate competent, responsible, caring, and professional nurses prepared from a biblical worldview to serve locally, nationally and globally; revering the human dignity of all persons created in the image of God.

The purpose of the baccalaureate program leading to a Bachelor of Science in Nursing is to provide a curriculum that will broaden the theoretical knowledge base of the learner in preparation for professional nursing practice and future graduate nursing study.

Traditional Bachelor of Science in Nursing students complete Board of Registered Nursing (BRN) approved pre-licensure courses designed to prepare the students to take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN), and preparing them for a seamless transition into graduate nursing. The 14 week semesters are comprised of courses scheduled in a full-time delivery mode for the theoretical and practicum content required by the BRN. Students are advised that the program represents a very intensive, full-time commitment. The BSN program is accredited by the credentialing body of the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN).

The RN-BSN program is designed for working, licensed RNs to advance their educational level. The program is offered in a hybrid format.

The AACN Essentials of Baccalaureate Education in Nursing guide the BSN coursework in order to prepare graduates for the role of the baccalaureate generalist nurse including: provider of care, designer/manager/coordinator of care, and member of the nursing profession. The BSN curriculum includes both direct and indirect care for individuals, families, groups, communities, and populations.
