PLEASE NOTE: The Associate 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 educational and/or non-educational requirements to complete prior to applying for the RN license. Current students may review the Associate Degree in Nursing state authorization and professional licensure webpage to determine whether this program meets the educational requirements in a specific state. MSMU would like to help our students navigate the licensure process. Contact the A.D.N office at (213) 477-2630 or via email at to discuss the process of obtaining an RN license in a state outside of California. The A.D.N program is being discontinued and is not accepting new A.D.N students at this time.
