Find qualified RN to BSN programs offered by South Carolina nursing schools

Complete your Bachelor's degree in Nursing and advance your career

If you are a registered nurse working in South Carolina and you would like to pursue your BSN degree there are special programs available that are designed for RNs to make the transition into their BSN degree. These courses build upon the nurses current educational background and nursing knowledge and can be completed in 1-3 years. Program costs vary by institution and financial aid is available to students who qualify.


The University of South Carolina has a renowned RN to BSN program that is currently being offered at four different campus locations. Other SC colleges and universities have competitive RN-BSN programs as well, and there are also online schools offering the transition course to South Carolina nursing students.

After completing a BSN degree the individual will be qualified to apply for RN jobs in nursing specialty fields such as obstetrics, radiology, dialysis, pulmonary care, pediatrics and geriatrics. These jobs will provide additional on-the-job training to qualified applicants, but having a BSN is usually a prerequisite for initial consideration.

BSN nurses can also apply for nurse management jobs, nurse educator positions and various administrative roles within a hospital or medical care center. If an RN decides to pursue other career options outside of nursing they will be able to utilize their Bachelors degree to their advantage since a four-year degree is widely accepted for many career-level positions. It is always nice to have additional options available just in case.
