Claflin University, the historically Black educational institution in Orangeburg, South Carolina, has announced that it will offer a master’s degree program in nursing. The new program will admit students this fall. Claflin will be the first historically Black educational institution in South Carolina to offer a graduate degree program in nursing.

Karl Wright, provost at Claflin University stated that “there is a great need for graduate-level nurses in South Carolina. They will help meet the nursing needs in the rural communities that are underserved by the healthcare profession.”
