There is great potential for nursing in the rapidly changing health care system. Nursing offers a variety of opportunities for service to society, for personal growth, and for professional development. Nurses deliver health care to people in hospitals, extended care facilities, private homes, public health, schools and other community settings. State and national data reflect a serious and ongoing shortage of nurses, particularly for nurses prepared at baccalaureate and master's levels. Nursing graduates are highly marketable in a variety of nursing positions. CSU, Chico graduates are prepared to be the future leaders in nursing and are well regarded in the nursing community. The BSN program is accredited by the California Board of Registered Nursing, and the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).
