The addition of a four-year degree program in nursing recognizes the need for bachelor's-prepared registered nurses to support the growing needs of the community. This program will prepare our students to become leaders in the ever-changing healthcare environment.

Coastal Carolina University offers multiple options to obtain a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, including a traditional four-year BSN program, 1+2+1 prelicensure partnership program, and RN-to-BSN completion program for RNs wishing to continue their education.

Each program prepares students to implement roles in today's health care environment that require commitment to evidence-based practice, professionalism and professional ethics, health promotion and disease prevention for individuals and population, leadership skills and knowledge that utilize health information technology, communication, and collaboration to promote patient safety and quality care. Students will study a variety of topics in the classroom, including health assessment, community health nursing, transcultural care, health policy and leadership in nursing, nursing research, and real-life case studies.

Career opportunities for students graduating with a nursing degree include roles in hospitals, retirement or assisted living facilities, community clinics, health departments, schools or universities, and other various health care agencies.

Nursing faculty embrace quality teaching and engaged learning opportunities in the classroom, faculty-student mentoring, and multiple learning opportunities throughout the program.
