St. John’s College of Nursing and Greenville University recently announced a partnership that will give students a four-year path to earning a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree. This will decrease Greenville students’ nursing school journey from five years to four years and provide an option to train locally at HSHS Holy Family Hospital.
A Nursing Preview Day will be held on September 25 at 10 am on the Greenville University campus. For those interested in attending or learning more about the BSN program, call the GU Admissions Office at 618-664-7100. To register for the event, click here.
“All of us at St. John’s College of Nursing are excited about this partnership with Greenville University,” said Charlene Aaron, PhD, RN, chancellor and professor at St. John’s College of Nursing. “Students will now be able to meet their nursing goals more efficiently by saving both time and money to complete their degrees.”
The local pathway allows Greenville University students to complete their pre-nursing coursework at Greenville, then enter the St. John’s College of Nursing program on Greenville’s campus. In this scenario, the clinical experiences will take place at HSHS Holy Family Hospital, Greenville and other HSHS hospitals in the southern part of the state.
The other pathway is for Greenville students to complete their pre-nursing courses at Greenville University, then come to St. John’s College of Nursing to complete the final two years of study in Springfield including clinicals at HSHS St. John’s Hospital.
Both pathways are available now. Students may apply and be admitted in the fall of 2021.
