Since 1934, Mira Costa Community College has served the Oceanside area. PLNU partners with Mira Costa to bring our nursing program to North county, allowing students to access the same nursing education as our traditional undergraduate students, without commuting to Point Loma.
RN to BSN: There is high demand for nurses in California, and a growing need for opportunities for nurses to get the education they need to advance their careers. A national study by the Institute of Medicine recommends that by 2020, eight out of 10 nurses should have a bachelor’s degree to meet the nation’s healthcare needs.
PLNU has partnered with Mira Costa Community College to help nurses complete their education and advance in their profession. This provides a path to a stable and fulfilling career. The median wage in 2014 for registered nurses in California was $95,415 annually or $45.87 hourly. Learn more about the RN to BSN program at Mira Costa.
