California State University Northridge

ADN to BSN

COC offered the first joint program between College of the Canyons Nursing program and the nursing program at the California State University at Northridge (CSUN) in spring 2010.  We are pleased to announce that the next cohort will begin in spring 2013 and each spring thereafter.  Information regarding application to the spring 2014 cohort will be available beginning with the application cycle in August 2013.

This grant funded pilot project facilitated a COC nursing graduate to complete the BSN degree within one year of passing the NCLEX examination. Ten highly qualified students were considered for eligibility in the original cohort.

To be considered, students must meet both the COC and CSUN admission criteria. Courses will be taken simultaneously at COC and CSUN beginning in the second semester of the COC RN program. This is not a separate application process to the COC nursing Program. If you are interested and believe you are qualified, please indicate this by checking the box on the COC RN Program application.
