North Greenville University’s College of Science and Mathematics and the University of South Carolina Upstate’s Mary Black School of Nursing on Tuesday announced a new partnership to help meet the growing needs of the nursing industry.

As part of the new partnership, NGU biology majors interested in a nursing career will have the opportunity to earn two bachelor’s degrees in five years. The first three years will be spent at the NGU campus and the final two years will be spent at the Mary Black School of Nursing on either the main campus in Spartanburg or the USC Upstate Greenville Campus at the University Center in Greenville, according to a news release. Students will receive a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from NGU after their fourth year and a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing from USC Upstate after the fifth year.  

Officials said standards include maintaining an overall 3.0 grade point average, having a 2.5 GPA in the required sciences, completing the program requirements for clinical hours, passing the pre-admission assessment, and getting the dean’s approval.

The first group of NGU students will enter the nursing program at USC Upstate in Spring 2019.
