Prisma Health (formerly Greenville Health System) and Clemson University have expanded their unique collaboration to address another critical health care need: the nation’s growing shortage of nurses.
In the fall 2018, Clemson University School of Nursing students began coursework at the Clemson University Nursing building, located on Prisma Health’s Greenville Memorial Medical Campus.
This expanded program allows students to live and study at Clemson University while exploring unmatched education and clinical opportunities during their junior and senior year with Prisma Health.
