St. John’s College of Nursing and Greenville University are pleased to announce 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.

“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 first 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. This pathway is available now. Students may apply and be admitted in the fall of 2021.

The second 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. This pathway is available upon approval from accrediting bodies. Students will be admitted through this pathway in fall of 2022.

“We are happy to be partnering with St. John’s College of Nursing. They offer a top-notch BSN program with many connections for placement in hospitals and clinics across our region,” said Suzanne Davis, J.D., MBA, president of Greenville University. “This collaboration has been in the works for quite some time so it’s great to see it come to fruition for current and future Greenville University students.”
