Nursing Program Expansion
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.

Arranging a Visit
Due to the high volume of individual requests, the School of Nursing holds group sessions to provide prospective students information about the program. Led by nursing advisors, group sessions include information about the admissions process as well as curriculum information. Most sessions are held on Friday afternoons and last approximately one hour. Space is limited and advanced reservation is required. Note that participation in group sessions in no way influences admissions decisions. To sign up for a group session, click on this online form. If you are unable to attend a group session, the information shared in group sessions can be picked up at our office from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday (except weekends and University holidays).
