Prospective Students

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

In collaboration with Prisma Health-Upstate, Clemson University has expanded its nursing program in the Clemson University Nursing building in Greenville – an effort that has more than doubled enrollment in Clemson’s traditional Bachelor of Science in Nursing program. This expansion is helping meet the growing need for nurses and bolstering health innovation and research efforts in Upstate South Carolina. The collaboration has also expanded student clinical placements within Prisma Health-Upstate.

With this program expansion, the School of Nursing is targeting an incoming freshman class of approximately 175 students. Entering freshmen have the opportunity to be part of one of two cohorts – a Clemson-based traditional cohort or a Greenville-based accelerated cohort – beginning once students reach their clinical courses. Transportation is 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, Prisma Health Oconee Memorial Hospital, and Prisma Health Baptist Easley Hospital 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. These collaborations allow 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
