College of Nursing building


The MUSC College of Nursing has a long and distinguished history of more than 135 years preparing the finest professional nurses who care, cure, and create new knowledge in improving the health of individuals, families, and communities. We educate more than 560 students each year who earn baccalaureate, master’s and doctoral degrees. Nearly half of our nursing students receive their education and training entirely through our academically and technologically advanced online program. In 2019, U.S. News & World Report ranked our online graduate nursing programs No. 6 in the country and it has held one of the top six spots in the nation six years in a row. The college also possesses a strong nursing research program and currently ranks No. 16 in NIH funding among colleges of nursing across the country. With more than $12 million secured in total funding last year, the college is the highest ranked college of nursing in South Carolina, and the third highest in the southeast in federal research funding.
