The information in this guide is subject to change. The universities may require additional lower division courses beyond those listed or articulated. For CSUs and UCs, the information is based on 2015-16 articulation agreements, and the most recent articulation information is available at www.assist.org. See Independent California Colleges & Universities articulation agreements for Agreements for Dominican, Loma Linda, and PUC. Each university has specific admission criteria, so it is essential to review a current catalog or nursing department Web site of the campus of your choice and consult with a counselor.

Several CSU campuses, UCLA, and some independent California colleges and universities offer the basic nursing program that includes the clinical portion of the nursing education. A valuable source for information on nursing programs is the California Board of Registered Nursing.
Nursing program applicants may be required to complete the pre-admission Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS). Check with the college or university.
