BSN Advising

Future BSN Students

Important: BSN Advising Slides

Interested in applying to nursing? Every applicant should attend an information session (group advising) before applying. Sessions are held twice during spring and fall semesters! 

Check out the schedule of group advising sessions, and register for a date that works for you.

Not able to make a live session? After reading through the BSN Advising Slides (linked above), you can watch a recording of the March info session here.

 

Advising Appointments, Individual

If you still have questions after attending an information session, appointments are available for 20-minute online sessions with a nursing faculty advisor during the fall and spring semester. 

Students must review the BSN Info packet and Advising Slides prior to scheduling an individual session. Due to the limited time available, please come prepared to the advising appointment. Students are expected to review the application requirements before attending the appointment.

Student must provide the following required information in the description box while booking:

  • Full Name

  • Email Address

Already at SJSU?

Pre-Nursing, Undeclared SJSU students can receive additional advising through the CHHS Student Success Center for assistance with GE advising and major prerequisites.

Change of Major Information

Meet with a Pre-Nursing advisor at the CHHS Student Success Center if you are an undeclared student with less than 60 units. If you have 60 units or more, you cannot change to the Pre-Nursing/Undeclared track.

You do not need to be a pre-nursing student to apply to the program. There is no guarantee for admission by being a pre-nursing student.

Applicants can apply to the BSN program from any other major. If you are selected for admission, your major will be changed to Nursing once you are admitted.
