Message from the Chair

While becoming a nurse or public health professional can be challenging, picking the right school shouldn’t be. Pursuing a health professions degree is hard work and we have high expectations of our students, but we will help you get there.  We celebrate what makes each one of our students unique and work with you to be the health professional you dream of becoming. The United States and South Carolina in particular need nurses and public health professionals from diverse backgrounds who are compassionate, skilled and visionary. At USCB, our goal is to educate students to be the best they can be and create a lifelong passion for learning.

University of South Carolina Beaufort’s Nursing and Public Health programs offer a world class education with a small town approach. Personalized attention and small class sizes set us apart from larger programs. Our faculty are highly educated experts in their fields and we never use Teaching Assistants - ever. Classrooms are equipped with technology and students learn how to become health professionals through a carefully built curriculum that support student success. Learning approaches vary to accommodate different learners’ needs and all students learn how to become health professionals through a combination of classroom, simulation and experiential learning. Together, a modern curriculum, varied learning opportunities and outstanding faculty lead to an exceptional learning experience for our students who are well-prepared to enter practice.

University of South Carolina Beaufort is located in the heart of the lowcountry, close to Hilton Head beaches and a short drive to Savannah and Charleston. We invite you to visit our webpages to learn more about USCB Health Professions programs!
