Welcome From the Dean


Welcome to the USC Aiken School of Nursing website.  The faculty and staff in the School of Nursing work diligently to prepare our students with the knowledge and skills necessary for success in a rapidly changing society.  Our nursing students are part of a caring and active learning environment that includes traditional classroom methods, hands-on lab experiences, high-fidelity simulation, and actual practice in a variety of healthcare settings.  Through excellence in teaching, scholarship, and service, we are committed to graduating students with the knowledge and competencies necessary to assume responsible positions in the delivery of health care.  Nursing school is a life-changing experience…it will change your life and the lives of those entrusted to your care. 

Please come and join us for this challenging and fulfilling life-changing experience.
