The mission of the baccalaureate nursing program at CSUEB is to prepare professional nurse generalists who are committed to the practice of nursing and responsive to the ever changing needs of the communities we serve. The program therefore seeks to provide an inclusive community of learning focused primarily on undergraduate nursing education and the development of lifelong learners.
The nursing program supports and reflects the University mission of quality education for a diverse society. We value a diverse workforce, a diverse nursing student body, and culturally inclusive practitioners of nursing who are equipped to provide high quality care and have a transformative influence on nursing practice, healthcare environments, and the health of our community.
Health sciences is an interdisciplinary field that focuses on the application of physical, biological, and social sciences to understand and to improve health in human beings. It is an applied science that focuses on knowledge and skills necessary to practice in both clinical and population health settings. Students in our Health Sciences program prepare for careers in healthcare administration and policy, public health or prepare for further training in technical or professional clinical programs.
The Health Sciences degree program is the second largest and the fastest growing program at CSUEB.
