The Masters of Science in Nursing (MSN) Pathway program, offered by the School of Nursing at California State University Dominguez Hills (CSUDH) is designed for Registered Nurses (RNs) who hold a bachelor’s degree in another field. Select BSN courses are required to bridge to the Masters of Science Degree (MSN). Students obtain the MSN upon completion of the BSN and MSN courses required for the role option. A Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) is not conferred in this program.
RNs or nursing students nearing completion of the RN program must participate in a MSN Pathway Workshop either in person or by conference call through a 1 (800) number. The Pathway advisor will review the transcripts to note whether all CSU admission requirements have been satisfied and to determine which BSN courses are required to bridge to the MSN. It is preferable to attend the workshop before applying for admission to the university.
The BSN courses needed to bridge to the MSN include the following (or equivalent):
BSN 346 Pathophysiology (3 units)
BSN 380/381 Health assessment (4 units)
BSN 422/423 Community based nursing (5 units)
BSN 450/451 Principles of leadership/management in nursing (5 units)
BSN 460 Nursing research utilization (3 units)
The MSN Pathway advisor will review your transcripts prior to the workshop to determine whether any of the above courses can be waived on the basis of prior equivalent coursework or work experience as a registered nurse.
