The pre-licensure/generic curriculum plan is for students without a nursing background and the LPN – BSN plan is for individuals who have already completed an approved practical nurse program will close on December 31, 2014. The RN to BSN completion plan will be offered for RNs who have completed a Diploma or Associate Degree program, from a regionally accredited nursing program for RNs and now wish to obtain the Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree. In order to be considered for admission, each student must possess an unrestricted South Carolina or Multi-state licensure as a Registered Nurse.
The mission of the Department of Nursing is to create a premier multicultural learning environment which produces leaders, clinicians, scholars, and researchers who exemplify nursing excellence and enhance healthcare delivery to South Carolina residents and beyond. The Department of Nursing will offer innovative, dynamic, and comprehensive educational experiences engaging students in expanding their nursing knowledge, enhancing professional skills in preparation for meeting the health care needs of the community.
