"MUSC Nurses Change Lives"
The College of Nursing Needs Your Support
Today the college has outstanding baccalaureate and graduate nursing education programs, and robust research and practice agendas. The pass rate for the new nurse licensing examination (NCLEX) has been above 90 percent for the past eight years. In addition, the College is ranked 30th nationally among over 700 nursing schools in research funding from the National Institutes of Health. And our students reflect diversity, with underrepresented minorities making up 30 percent of total admissions.
Despite its accomplishments, MUSC and the College of Nursing has seen a 46 percent reduction in its state appropriations over just the past five years. These considerable cutbacks hit just as the college seeks to increase enrollment during a national nursing shortage.
In order to continue our important work, we need your support now more than ever.
