My Thoughts: What Is A Nurse Educator Job

Architect Clements said. “Clemson is excited about this next step in its partnership with GHS.” By working together, Clemson and GHS will expand Clemson’s traditional Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree program from 352 students to an anticipated 800 students in the next six years. Historically, the School of Nursing has been able to enroll only about 8 percent of its applicants because of limited seats and clinical placements. The nursing program expansion will increase the number of clinical placements within GHS. “The School of Nursing is thrilled to work with Greenville Health System to develop a collaboration that will not only expand our enrollment but will also provide an opportunity to integrate teaching and clinical practice in innovative ways that will positively impact nursing education and patient outcomes,” said Kathleen Valentine, director and associate dean of Clemson University’s School of Nursing and GHS chief nursing academic officer. “The clinical immersion experiences afforded this cohort of students will make them attractive as future employees.” Students are expected to begin coursework at GHS’ Greenville Memorial Medical Campus site in fall 2018, after completing their first two years at the Clemson campus. The program will be housed in a new four-story, 78,255-square-foot clinical learning and research building at GHS that offers a hospital-like environment with virtual reality IV simulators and high-fidelity human patient simulators, classrooms and offices. The building also will include space for academic collaboration. More than 90 Clemson faculty health researchers are already working across the GHS campuses with clinicians on projects with immediate potential impact for patients.
