There are many open nursing jobs in South Carolina for RNs, LPNs, nurse practitioners and more. Rural areas and teaching hospitals are especially in desperate need of these nurses. Upstate South Carolina is doing well keeping nursing vacancy rates low for now, but that is expected to change. This is because like the majority of states, South Carolina has an aging population and a shortage of nurse educators. The state is being proactive, though, knowing that a nursing shortage is inevitable.

Flight-transport nurses are emergency-trauma nurses that treat patients during air and/or ground transport before they reach a medical facility or while transferring critically ill patients between facilities. The Certified Flight Registered Nurse (CFRN) credential is available through the Board of Certification for Emergency Nursing (BCEN) and is accredited by the American Board of Nursing Specialties (ABNS). To become a CFRN, a registered nurse must have a current license; flight nurse experience is recommended but not required. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics expects excellent, overall job growth for registered nurses. According to PayScale, the flight nurse salary range is $58,340-$80,654.
