Offered at three of APU’s regional campuses in Victorville, San Bernardino, and Monrovia, the program enables students with 49 units of transferable nursing prerequisite courses to complete the nursing major in six consecutive semesters (two years) at APU, including summers.

Students at APU’s regional campuses benefit from the same quality nursing education offered at the Azusa campus, and receive personalized attention in a supportive, Christian environment. Taught by experienced faculty-practitioners, the transfer BSN centers on the foundation of nursing care for individuals, families, and communities across the lifespan and in a variety of environments. Students gain hands-on experience through clinical opportunities, and benefit from state-of-the-art technology, including simulators and virtual patients. Upon completion of the program, students are eligible for public health certification.
