CSU ADN to BSN Nursing Roadmaps

Noelia Citialin

I chose to pursue my BSN to improve my career, my nursing knowledge, and also my self-esteem. I am currently a clinical teacher at Bakersfield College, and having my BSN will allow me to expand what I teach, as well as my earning power. Nursing is evolving, thanks to evidence-based practice; and I now feel that I am a confident nurse who can keep up with changes in my field. Although the CSU Bakersfield program was challenging, I learned new and valuable information about nursing theories, research, and ethics, to name a few topics. The community health nursing experience was very rewarding because we were able to make a difference in clients’ lives. The nursing staff was very supportive. Michelle Kinder took time out of her busy schedule to help me when I was in need, while Brynn Shock went above and beyond to make sure students stayed on track towards graduation. I leave this program with better leadership, critical thinking, and decision-making skills, as well as having more confidence. The RN-to-BSN program at CSUB has been very satisfying, and I highly recommend it to all nurses looking to better themselves.
