PREB in Pre-Nursing

The mission of the School of Nursing is to offer quality nursing education to undergraduate and graduate nursing students. This education prepares nurses to make clinical decisions based on theory and research. As life-long learners, graduates are prepared to deliver quality health care for increasingly diverse populations. Graduates will lead, supervise, delegate, manage, and evaluate care outcomes, as well as demonstrate the ability to act as consumer advocates in promoting wellness and facilitating change.

The scope of nursing practice is changing significantly. The professional nurse uses theory and research-based knowledge to provide direct and indirect care to individuals, families, groups, and communities.

In the role as designer, manager, and coordinator of care, nurses collaborate with patients and interdisciplinary care teams.

The school offers an undergraduate program which leads to the Bachelor of Science in Nursing, a postbaccalaureate School Nurse Services Credential Program with an option to pursue the master's degree in nursing, a graduate program leading to a Master of Science in Nursing, a Post-Master's Nurse Practitioner Certificate Program, and a Post-Master's Clinical Nurse Specialist/Nurse Educator Program.

Clinical Facilities

A wide variety of clinical placements are available. Placement facilities include Community Hospitals of Central California, St. Agnes Medical Center, Children's Hospital of Central California, Veteran's Administration Medical Center, Kaweah Delta, Adventist Hospital, Madera Community Hospital, Fresno Heart and Surgical Hospital, the Armenian Home, San Joaquin Gardens, the Kaiser Permanente Medical Group, and the health departments of Fresno, Madera, Kings, and Tulare counties.

Undergraduate Program

The program requires six semesters of nursing courses in addition to two semesters of prerequisite requirements. The basic General Education require-ments are the same for all majors. Upon completion of the sixth semester clinical course sequence, the student is qualified to apply to take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN) and apply for the Public Health Nurse Certificate. California State University, Fresno's nursing program is certified by the California Board of Registered Nursing and accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).

RN-BSN PROGRAM (Post-licensure)

The RN-BSN program is designed for associate degree nurses (ADNs) with a registered -nursing license to complete upper division nursing courses that fulfill the BSN degree without repeating lower division nursing coursework. Upper division nursing coursework expands upon leadership and management principles, and introduces research and evidence-based practice methodologies, as well as population-focused community health nursing.

Licensed Vocational Nurses are offered three options:

  1. Generic Nursing Program
  2. Transfer/Credit by Examination
  3. Thirty-Unit Option (nondegree)

LVN 30-unit option students must contact the chair of nursing for pre-admission advising. Acceptance to the 30-unit option program is based on space availability in selected nursing courses. It is important to note that the 30-unit option RN licensee will not be awarded a degree and his/her ability to practice in different states may be limited by state reciprocity regulations.

Health Related Personnel. Medical corpsmen, psychiatric technicians, and others are eligible for credit by examination under the university's policy as outlined in the current catalog.

Advanced placement in the major prepares qualified students to receive their B.S.N. The curriculum is designed to emphasize theory-based practice in nursing and to provide the foundation for graduate study. While pursuing the degree, students are encouraged to select their area of interest. They are also encouraged to collaboratively care for patients in a variety of settings: acute care, critical care, long-term care, ambulatory care, and home care.

Requirements

Graduate Program

The school offers a CCNE accredited program that leads to a Master of Science degree in Nursing. The purpose of the program is to prepare nurses for advanced practice in the functional roles of primary care nurse practitioner and clinical nurse specialist/nursing educator. Each graduate of the master's in nursing program must demonstrate advanced knowledge and skill in physical diagnosis, psychological assessment, and management of health-illness needs in complex client and community systems. The program provides a foundation for doctoral study in nursing.

Clinical Options
Students select a functional role of either primary care nurse practitioner or clinical nurse specialist/nursing educator. Any nursing class in the role specialization options area may be cancelled because of insufficient enrollment.

Clinical Nurse Specialist/Nurse Educator
The Clinical Nurse Specialist/Nurse Educator Option prepares the graduate to assume a leadership role with advanced skills, knowledge, and competence in adult/geriatric or pediatric areas of clinical nursing. Students in this option will demonstrate competence in the areas of expert clinical practice, education, research, consultation, and clinical leadership.

CNS graduates meet the requirements for clinical nurse specialist certification through the California Board of Registered Nursing and national certification through the American Nurses Credentialing Center.

Nurse practitioner
The Primary Care/Nurse practitioner Option prepares the graduate to provide primary health care to children, the elderly adult, and families. Classroom and clinical experiences focus on health assessment, health maintinance, and promotion , as well as counseling, client education, and management of selected health problems. Practice in rural settings and with clients from diversified cultural backgrounds is emphasized.

Graduates meet the requirements for recognition as pediatric or family nurse practitioners in California and may apply for national certification.

The purpose of the Primary Care/Nurse Practitioner Option is to prepare nurses as specialists in primary care and to improve the availability, accessability, and quality of primary care services in the Central San Joaquin Valley.
