Course info


The Valley Foundation School of Nursing offers an innovative curriculum and varied experiential opportunities for students. The baccalaureate, master's, and doctoral degree programs in The Valley Foundation School of Nursing at San Jose State University are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education. These programs prepare nursing professionals to be socially and ethically responsible clinicians and scholars who are able to meet the changing healthcare needs of a diverse global community. Under faculty supervision, baccalaureate nursing students participate in clinical experiences in both hospital and community agencies. Our nurse-managed centers, located in Santa Clara and Santa Cruz counties, offer students the opportunity to provide health services and illness prevention services to populations in need. Nurses returning for their master's will gain additional knowledge and skills needed for advanced practice in education and administration. California State University, Fresno and San Jose State University offer a joint post-master's Doctor of Nursing Practice Program. The Doctor of Nursing Practice Program prepares professional nurses to assume leadership positions in clinical, administrative, and academic settings.

Admittance into this degree requires an Associate in Science degree in Nursing and passage of the NCLEX (National Council Licensure Examination) the licensing examination for nurses in the United States.

Admission occurs every Spring and Fall semester. The RN to BSN program can be completed in 3 semesters of full-time study.
