"I truly feel that my decision to enroll in the accelerated nursing
program at Clemson was one the best and most life changing decisions I
have ever made. As we walked up the stage at convocation to receive our
nursing pins, I realized that Clemson has not only taught me to be a
nurse, but to be a better person."
Laura Alonso, December 2012 graduate.
