GHS and Clemson University are expanding their unique collaboration to address another critical health care need: the nation’s growing shortage of nurses.
Beginning fall 2018, Clemson University School of Nursing students will begin coursework at the Clemson University Center for Nursing, Health Research and Innovation, located on Greenville Health System’s (GHS) main 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 GHS.
