BS - Nursing
Undergraduate Coordinator and Advisor: Dr. Sue Malloy
Programs at SJSU prepare you for professional careers with a baccalaureate degree in Nursing.
The following courses (or their equivalents) are to be completed for the baccalaureate degree. Extended campus facilities include public health departments, home health agencies, sub-acute facilities, skilled nursing facilities, ambulatory care clinics, acute care hospitals, Nurse-Managed Centers and a wide variety of community-based agencies for clinical experience. Students must provide their own transportation to extended campus facilities. Some community agencies require home visits, therefore students must have individual use of an automobile.
Overall requirements: Students must maintain a minimum grade of "C" or better or "Credit" in each nursing course and in all prerequisites and corequisite courses for the nursing major (see admission impaction supplemental criteria for exceptions). Policies are posted on The Valley Foundation School of Nursing website at www.sjsu.edu/nursing.
