History of the CSM Nursing Program
In response to a survey of hospitals, schools, health officials, and other agencies, the Associate Degree Nursing Program was initiated in the Fall of 1963 to meet the need for registered nurses in the community. The first class graduated in 1965 shortly after the new CSM campus on the hill was opened. more>>

CSM Student Nurse Panel on Nurse Talk Radio
Nurse Casey talks with a Student Nurse Panel from the College of San Mateo School of Nursing. It is a wonderful conversation with four very smart senior nursing students. They talk about why they were called to nursing, the challenges they have faced and will face and of course they share a funny story or two because after all, "laughter is the best medicine."
The discussion begins approximately 28 minutes into the program.
