What is Jump Start?
• Current ADN students can get a “jump start” on their
BSN by completing up to two CSUF School of Nursing
RN-BSN courses through OU
• Graduating ADN students (May/June 2014) can only
participate if they have already submitted a Fall 2014
CSUF and an RN-BSN Nursing application
Time Commitment
• To be successful in these courses, students should
plan to spend approximately 10-15 hours per week,
per class for reading/assignments, etc.
• Students are allowed to participate in both courses
as long as they understand the time commitment
expected of them for the coursework
Courses and Format
• NURS 305 Professional Nursing (4 units)
• NURS 310 Nursing Research/Evidence Based Practice
(3 units)
– Both courses will be offered in two different formats: a
traditional in-person, on-campus course, as well as an
online option, in which students may only meet on the first
day of the course
– There will be an in-person, on-campus, “Jump Start”
orientation on the first day of the course session
NURS 305 Professional Nursing
• The professional nursing role is examined including
nursing theory and research, ethics theory,
communication theory and principles, and the nursing
process. Selected psychosocial concepts and theories and
their relationship to health are the focus of assessment
and implementation with individual clients. Theories and
concepts of health and techniques in health promotion
are presented from a holistic framework. The influence of
culture, role, social support, and values upon the nurse
and the client are evaluated.
NURS 310 Nursing Research/Evidence
Based Practice
• Emphasis is placed on the development of nursing
knowledge and the improvement of nursing practice
through current relevant evidence. Research
methods are examined and current issues are
analyzed in relation to the implementation of
evidence-based practice in selected settings.
