What ADN to BSN Instructors Say About the Program


“Students are very happy with the ADN to BSN collaboration. They are grateful for the flexible, student-centered faculty support at both Sac State and in the community colleges. The accelerated, academically rigorous program is a critical pipeline that meets the marketplace demand for well-educated nurses with bachelor’s degrees.”

— Michelle Dang, faculty coordinator

I’ve been with the ADN to BSN program since its inception, and the program has greatly exceeded my expectations. Back when I was teaching five years ago, I had a student that was going to pay $30k to attend a private school’s BSN program because Sac State was full, and other schools were difficult to get into and/or impacted as well. I had to come up with a better opportunity for students that wasn’t cost-prohibitive, and that’s how the ADN to BSN program was born.
