SC Higher Education Commission to spend $5 million on nursing salaries – ABC Columbia

The South Carolina Commission on Higher Education (CHE) announced plans to spend $5 million on nursing faculty salaries.

Columbia, SC (WOLO) – The South Carolina Commission on Higher Education (CHE) announced plans to spend $5 million on nursing faculty salaries.

Full-time and part-time nursing faculty staff at public universities, colleges, and technical colleges with an accredited nursing program are eligible to receive additional funds.

This initiative is part of South Carolina’s efforts to address the nursing shortage. CHE says the pay gap between nursing faculty programs and higher-paying clinical nursing jobs is one of the most recognized barriers to nursing education.

In a press release, officials said the purpose of the fund is to encourage interest in nursing positions.

CHE officials said institutions receiving funding were notified by email in September.
