CSU ADN to BSN Nursing Roadmaps

Natalie Adame

I am 21 years old and I am a third-semester nursing student at CSU Long Beach. I have always been attracted to nursing because I am passionate about helping others. I chose to attend a BSN program because I believe in challenging myself, and since day one of nursing school, I have not been let down. I come to school each week inspired by my professors to think critically and to push myself to be the best I can be. I attend weekly clinicals at the hospital where my instructors show me how to give the best quality care to my patients. The skills and amount of knowledge I have acquired since my first semester as a nursing student are astounding! How many other college students can claim to have inserted their first peripheral intravenous line successfully, held the hand of a patient in the intensive care unit as he was being intubated, or discussed a plan of treatment with physicians? For nursing students it is all in a day’s work—and I love it! Once you are accepted into CSULB’s BSN program you will be surrounded by incredible staff who want nothing more than to help you succeed, and wonderful classmates who make those care plans and tests seem bearable. I could not ask for anything more in a nursing program, and again, I am so glad to have been accepted into this one because I know it will set me up for a bright future and will help me become the best nurse I can be.
