Faculty Information

Graduate Program in Nursing

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 Master of Science degree in Nursing (MSN) is to prepare students for dynamic nursing leadership to improve patient outcomes in a variety of healthcare settings. The focus is on critically examining ideas, research, and theories in relation to health issues and clinical practice in preparation for direct and indirect care both locally and globally. The program prepares graduates for seamless transition into doctoral study.

The purpose of the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program is to prepare students to assume clinical leadership positions in a variety of health care, business, government, and educational organizations. The focus is on practice that is innovative and evidence-based, reflecting the application of credible research findings and theories to improving health care outcomes.

Licensure, Advanced Practice Certification, and Accreditation

The graduate nursing programs that include pre-licensure coursework offered by California Baptist University are Board of Registered Nursing (BRN) approved programs and therefore requirements for licensure and certification are subject to change by the BRN at any time. The University and the College of Nursing reserve the right to modify the licensure or certification course requirements when directed to do so by the Board of Registered Nursing or other accrediting agencies. Since licensure, credentialing, and certification requirements are subject to change it is the student’s responsibility to contact the College of Nursing about current requirements.

The MSN program is accredited by the credentialing body of the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) and meets the accreditation standards of the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).
