Nursing students receive instruction in the simulation lab.

B.S. in Nursing

"By attending Salkehatchie I have become more confident in not only myself but my professional abilities, as well. When you have professors who believe in you and go that extra mile just to see you succeed, you begin to believe in yourself and accomplish your dreams." 

- Taylor Brown, Class of 2014


The nursing program at USC Salkehatchie allows students seeking a medical career to obtain a bachelor’s degree in nursing in their own community. 

USC Salkehatchie is transitioning the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) partnership program from USC Columbia to USC Beaufort.  This transition requires approval from multiple accreditors, and USC Salkehatchie is working closely with USC Columbia and USC Beaufort to ensure a smooth transition for students.  Please contact a nursing program advisor at (803) 812-7435 if you have questions regarding admission to the program and/or program requirements.  

Simulation Training

Thanks to funding from private foundations, USC Salkehatchie now offers high fidelity simulation training. The new lab provides nursing students and area healthcare providers with a centrally located, state-of-the-art, dynamic simulation lab training facility, eliminating travel for simulation activities.
