Congratulations to Claflin's RN to BSN program for winning Best Nursing Program at the 2019 HBCU Awards on Friday, August 3, in Baltimore, Md., at the Reginald F. Lewis Museum.
Claflin launched its RN to Bachelor of Science in Nursing program during the 2016 fall semester. The 100 percent online program is designed to provide an opportunity for nurses with an associate degree to complete a bachelor of science in nursing while having the flexibility to work full time.
The HBCU Awards is the first and only national awards ceremony honoring individual and institutional achievement at historically black colleges and universities throughout the country. Winners are selected by a panel of previous winners, journalists, HBCU executives, students and alumni for the merit of accomplishment and for generating positive coverage for HBCU campus communities. In 2015, Claflin University was named HBCU of the Year and in 2018, Tiaria Norman, '18, was named Best Female Athlete by the HBCU Awards panel.
