PROGRAM INFORMATION

Thank you for considering Touro University California (TUC) School of Nursing (SON) for your continuing graduate education.  It is important that you find the most appropriate program that aligns with your nursing practice area, future career plans, and your family life.

Touro University California School of Nursing is based on an accelerated hybrid-model program delivery that is designed for the working nurse. Our student to teacher ratio is kept small to ensure graduates receive excellent instruction and mentorship throughout the program.

Our Master of Science in Nursing Program meets one evening a week and one Sunday a month. Our students have full access to the TUC campus resources for technical support, library support, student services, and faculty advisement through their academic journey.

Disclaimer:

“The TUC School of Nursing MSN program does not prepare students to become Clinical Nurse Leaders (CNL).  The CNL competencies are employed throughout the MSN curriculum to develop the nurse leader (NL) role in quality and safety improvement in the clinical setting.  While not explicitly preparing students for the CNL exam, students may choose to sit for the national examination for the CNL at the completion of the program.”
