Held at a variety of facilities around the greater Los Angeles area, clinicals are held Friday/Saturday or Saturday/Sunday between 6:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m.

It takes most students only twenty four months of classwork to achieve their Associate Degree in Nursing from the Mount. That’s right – in just two short years, you could be taking your examinations to become a registered nurse in the state of California.

The Associate’s Degree in Nursing meets the standards for and has been approved by the California Board of Registered Nursing, leading to a California Registered Nurse (RN) license.  Students who wish to practice in a state other than California may or may not have additional requirements to complete prior to applying for the RN license. Mount Saint Mary’s University is in the process of researching program professional licensure standards in other states. Contact Michael LaChance at to discuss additional requirements that may be needed to obtain an RN license in a state outside of California.
