The College of San Mateo Nursing Program provides students with opportunities for learning at the College, local hospitals, and community health agencies. The program is fully accredited by the California Board of Registered Nursing. Upon graduation, the candidate receives an Associate in Science degree in Nursing, and is eligible to take the National Council Licensing Exam (NCLEX) examination. The graduate is also eligible to transfer to programs offering a bachelor's degree in nursing.

History of the CSM Nursing Program
In response to a survey of hospitals, schools, health officials, and other agencies, the Associate Degree Nursing Program was initiated in the Fall of 1963 to meet the need for registered nurses in the community. The first class graduated in 1965 shortly after the new CSM campus on the hill was opened. more>>
