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.

Forensic nurses treat the victims of violence, crimes, abuse and trauma, while also aiding detectives in the scientific investigation that helps catch perpetrators. Even if they perform little to no direct patient care, forensic nurses must keep their RN license active. Certificates in Forensic Nursing are offered by such organizations as the University of California and American Forensic Nurses (AMRN), and forensic nurses can receive further certifications from the Forensic Nursing Certification Board (FNCB) as a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner Adult/Adolescent (SANE-A) or Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner Pediatric (SANE-P). The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts excellent, overall job growth for registered nurses.
