Master of Science in Nursing – Entry Level Master’s Program

The Entry Level Master of Science in Nursing Track (ELM) is designed for non-nurses holding a baccalaureate or master's degree in another field who are interested in completing course requirements leading to a graduate degree in nursing. Students should be able to complete the pre-licensure segment of the program by the end of their fifth semester, after which they are eligible to sit for the National Council Licensing Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN) and apply for their Public Health Certificate.


Graduates who complete the pre-licensure segment of the ELM program are then eligible to sit for the NCLEX-RN exam. Students can apply for the Public Health Nurse (PHN) Certificate issued by the California Board of Registered Nursing (BRN) upon graduation.

This option is for LVN’s that do hold a baccalaureate degree and are interested in taking courses to prepare for the NCLEX-RN exam. Anyone interested in this option should contact the school of nursing for more detail.
