Prospective Students

Current employment trends project a shortage of nurses and nursing faculty within the next five to 10 years.

In collaboration with Greenville Health System (GHS), Clemson University will expand its nursing program in Greenville – an effort that will more than double enrollment in Clemson’s traditional Bachelor of Science in Nursing program, help meet the growing need for nurses, and bolster health innovation and research efforts in upstate South Carolina. The collaboration will also expand student clinical placements within the Greenville Health System. With this program expansion, entering freshmen in 2016 and beyond will have the opportunity to be part of one of two cohorts – a Clemson-based traditional cohort or a Greenville-based program expansion cohort – beginning in the fall of their junior year. Transportation will be provided between the two sites of instruction. Click here for more information.

Clemson is also collaborating with Tri-County Technical College and AnMed Health, Cannon Memorial Hospital, Oconee Memorial Hospital and Palmetto Health Baptist Easley to develop a working solution to the nursing shortage. Together, we have created a program to advance your educational level no matter where you are in your nursing career. With LPN or RN programs at Tri-County Technical College, you can work and earn a bachelor’s, master’s or even doctoral degree at Clemson University. This partnership allows you to:

  • Meet the educational requirements needed for advancement
  • Enjoy flexible schedules that complement your busy lifestyle
  • Participate in Web-enhanced courses that meet your needs
  • Obtain one degree while working toward the next degree

Nursing simulation experience preps students for life after graduation

Just before the end of their final semester, Clemson student nurses crossed another important threshold on their way to becoming nursing professionals. The students took part in Senior Simulation, an experience in which students were tested on their nursing abilities through a series of patient care scenarios in the school’s Clinical Learning and Research Center at Edwards Hall, which replicates a state-of-the-art hospital setting. Their “patients” were the center’s high-tech mannequins programmed by professors to mimic medical symptoms, as well as student actors from Clemson’s theatre department who acted out scenarios. Students entered the simulations unaware of the situations they would face, said Jean Ellen Zavertnik, center director and School of Nursing lecturer. Read More
