Dear Alumni and Friends:

Front PageImproving the health of the people of the Upstate and surrounding regions, the nation and also the world through quality educational programs has been the primary mission of the Mary Black School of Nursing for 40 years. Our vision and the number of graduates providing quality care continue to grow.
The commitment of the School of Nursing to “make a difference” in the lives of individuals, families and communities has never waivered.

Technological advances allow faculty to simulate real world situations in labs and classrooms and enable students to pursue the baccalaureate degree from all parts of the state.
