Nursing - Registered Nurse BS Completion Program


Program Description


The RN/BS curriculum offers an individualized study option for the registered nurse to obtain a baccalaureate degree in Nursing. Credits may be earned through an accelerated program of study, combining transfer credits for selected courses from accredited institutions of higher learning, credit by examination for previously completed nursing courses, and enrollment in courses at Clemson University. Qualified students may take up to six hours of graduate courses towards the master’s degree in Nursing. Registered nurses interested in pursuing a baccalaureate degree should contact the School of Nursing for curriculum requirements. This program is offered at the University Center of Greenville.
