At the meeting of the California Board of Registered Nursing held on November 6th, 2013, United States University (USU) was granted permission to admit one cohort of 20 students into the Accelerated Bachelors of Science in Nursing (ABSN) program in January, 2014. Consequently, USU will begin accepting applications for admission into the ABSN program effective immediately.  We will admit 20 students and select three alternates who would enter the program should any of the 20 admitted students be unable to continue.
