- The Division of Nursing offers 2 pathways for earning a B.S. degree with a major in Nursing– a Prelicensure Path for pupils who wish to become nurses, plus a Registered Nurse to BSN Completion Path, for registered nurses who hold an associate’s degree or even a diploma in nursing who wish to take additional courses to earn their Bachelor’s degree in Nursing. The Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education nationally certifies the Nursing training program.
- The prelicensure baccalaureate degree path in Nursing at Newberry College provides pupils with a broad 2-year foundation for nursing followed by 2-years of upper division nursing courses resulting in a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in nursing.
- The training program is a collaboration with Lexington Medical Center, so students have various learning experiences with expert nurses both in the classroom as well as in the clinical setting. The Nursing training program is endorsed by the State Board of Nursing for South Carolina, so graduates meet the requirements to take the licensing exam to become registered nurses.
