Long Beach City College, CSU Long Beach and CSU Los Angeles nursing programs have established a partnership allowing LBCC qualified ADN students to transfer into the ADN-BSN program. Please check the Roadmap to BSN.

The ADN faculty strongly encourages all ADN graduates to continue pursuing their education. You have many options available to you. We have joined forces with CSULA and CSULB in developing road maps to guide you in achieving your BSN.

ADN-BSN Collaborative with CSULA is a formal program with a selected cohort of students who are currently in the LBCC ADN program. Special information sessions are provided to those students in the first year of the ADN program.
