RN to BSN Programs in Alabama

A survey report from the Alabama Board of Nursing showed that 75% of the total RNs in this state are working full time while 14% are part-timers. The two chief reasons why RNs do not practice their profession are first, they desire to work on flexible hours while others simply have lost the desire to return to their jobs. 

This same survey showed that three-quarters of these RNs have decided to work a decade or more. More than half of Alabama registered nurses work in hospitals while others are employed in physician’s offices, clinics, centers, and home health. 

The American Association of Colleges of Nursing declared that more than 580,000 nurses will be needed by the year 2018. Many nursing schools throughout the country have responded to this need as they established their own programs to reach out to more students. A decision that RNs can do in order to improve their career is to obtain a degree in BSN. 

Alabama has multiple programs that can help RNs meet this goal. Here are three top schools to consider for RN to BSN program: 

University of South Alabama offers a web-based, fully-online RN to BSN program. A student can log into his interactive courses and then complete his clinical requirements in his home community. This means there is no need to go to Mobile to complete this requirement. This program can be accomplished in a year of full-time study. Students, however, may move forward or lag behind according to their own pace.  

University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa offers a diverse spectrum of nursing courses. These are all offered online while students need to complete their clinical hours near their homes. After the fundamental requirements are completed, the student has the option to finish the program in just three semesters if she studies full-time. Part-time students can also enroll. 

Auburn University of Montgomery offers their RN to BSN program in both traditional and online settings. This can be completed in just three semesters if a student decides to study full-time. Clinical experiences and hours are separately structured and tailor fit to meet different students’ needs. 

At the moment the state of Alabama has 14 RN to BSN programs. Most of these programs are accredited by CCNE and some by NLN. If we are missing any program, please let us know.
