Service at Roper Hospital


HALOS (Helping And Lending Outreach Support)
HALOS provides assistance to abused and neglected children in Charleston County and their caregivers. Roper St. Francis employees help during the annual Day of Caring by providing canvas bags with items that might be useful to a child who is being relocated from a dangerous situation. RSFH supplies the canvas bags and our staff decorates and fills them.

Nurse Extern Program
The nurse extern program is a ten week summer program designed to provide a learning environment that fosters the development of nursing students’ skills, enhancing future success in nursing. This program is for current nursing students to help them learn to function on a unit as a part of the nursing team. 


Our successful healthcare mentoring program gives students an opportunity to learn about health careers from experts in the field who love their work. SCRUBS is an acronym for: Students Can Really Use Bedside Skills. The SCRUBS program offered at Roper St. Francis includes three different options helping students explore an interest in healthcare.
