Your Career Path

Your Career Path

The Newberry College Nursing Department is dedicated to providing an education that heals, cures and comforts. With state-of-the-art facilities, knowledgeable and compassionate faculty, and clinical partnerships with Lexington Medical Center and Newberry County Memorial Hospital, Nursing graduates will be prepared to meet the demands of the world beyond.

The Health Science major offers a broad-based curriculum that is ideal for students interested in health-related careers but who don't need the specialized focus required of other science majors. The major also is structured to satisfy the prerequisites for entry into most Allied Health programs.


Health Science majors can explore a wide variety of lucrative job opportunities in fields that will continue to grow over the next 10 years. (Some career paths may require further training or certification beyond the undergraduate degree so be sure to discuss your areas of interest with your faculty advisor.)

The Department of Nursing offers two pathways for earning a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.) degree. The B.S.N. Prelicensure Track is for students who want to become nurses. The R.N.-to-B.S.N. completion track is for registered nurses (RNs) who already have an associate degree or a diploma in nursing, and who want to take the necessary courses to earn their bachelor's degree. The baccalaureate degree program in nursing at Newberry College is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education.


The BSN Prelicensure Track at Newberry College is a four-year degree program. Students take foundation courses during their first year of study at Newberry College, followed by two years of upper-division courses. The program is offered in partnership with Lexington Medical Center, so students have a variety of learning experiences with expert nurses, both in the classroom and in the clinical setting. The Nursing program is approved by the State Board of Nursing for South Carolina, so graduates are eligible to take the licensing examination to become registered nurses.
