For more than 135 years, the MUSC College of Nursing has prepared nurses who care, cure, and improve the health of individuals, families and communities.
MUSC is the only academic health sciences center in South Carolina, and thus is on the cutting edge of health care practice, education and discovery. The College of Nursing has the only accelerated BSN program in the state and graduates more doctorally prepared nurses than any other institution in South Carolina.
Mission: The College of Nursing of the Medical University of South Carolina educates nurses in an interprofessional environment to change lives, and provides proactive leadership to improve health outcomes, eliminate health disparities and advance the nursing profession.

Please join us on Microsoft Teams on Tuesday, November 24, 2020 at 5:30 P.M.to learn how to take care of Muslim patients. As healthcare providers, we should all be accepting of others regardless of their faith and that means we must educate ourselves on ways we can promote diversity and inclusiveness within our workplace.

Are you a current APRN looking to obtain expertise and gain a deeper understanding of palliative care? The Medical University of South Carolina is now offering the first Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) in Lifespan Palliative Care in the country. Join us at an information session on Nov. 18 or Dec. 3 to learn more!
Hanna Epstein, DNP’14, CPNP, a nurse practitioner in the pediatric palliative care unit at @musckids, received the prestigious 2020 Ilene Beal Courageous Provider Award that recognizes brave providers who demonstrate a willingness to collaborate with other pediatric specialists. This award honors a pediatric provider who gives exceptional family-centered care in circumstances of serious childhood illness while exemplifing compassion, empathy, and the ability to accompany families during difficult phases of the illness journey.
“She overwhelmingly supports hope if there is any hope to be had,” said the mother of Harper Grace who was born with Edwards Syndrome, also known as Trisomy 18. Now almost four years old, Harper Grace has faced, and conquered, numerous medical challenges with the support of her family and her team of caring providers. Indeed, through Hanna, says Harper Grace’s mom, “we will see palliative care shift from being viewed as ONLY end of life care managed by a single specialist, and instead morph into a group effort. Where teams of multi-discipline specialists come together to work for a better, longer, and quality life for those born differently.”
Did you know that although we have “adult” in our title, AGNPs see patients from adolescents, throughout adulthood and extending through advanced age? This means that we typically see patients 12 years and older! This broad patient population affords AGNPs the opportunity for careers in many areas of medicine in which primary care is provided. We hope to see you at one of our information sessions to learn more about our DNP in AGNP program!

Word is getting out about the exciting work that is being done at the College of Nursing to prepare our nurses and nurse practitioner students in palliative care. Along with her colleagues, Assistant Professor Carrie Cormack recently published an article in the October issue of Nurse Educator about the importance of primary palliative care education at the graduate level to prepare students to care for the increasing number of patients with serious illness and their families. MUSC saw an opportunity to change what's possible and opened the country's first DNP program specializing in palliative care. Go to https://nursing.musc.edu/academics/dnp-aprn/post-masters to find our more.
