Being a registered nurse is one of the most rewarding and challenging of all professional careers. As a registered nurse you can have the opportunity to promote health, serve humanity and experience the self-satisfaction of a rewarding career.
The career outlook for registered nursing has been excellent over the past few decades. A shortage of nurses in some parts of the country has led some hospitals and other employers in those areas to offer flexible work schedules, educational benefits, higher pay, and other incentives to retain existing staff and for recruiting.
If you are looking for a nursing program with individualized instruction, a variety of health settings and an associate degree program which will qualify you for the National Licensure Exam for Registered Nurses, then The University of West Alabama may be the school for you. The nursing program at The University of West Alabama is approved by the Alabama Board of Nursing and accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission.
The curriculum consists of six consecutive semesters including two academic years and 2 summer semesters. Nursing students at The University of West Alabama have the advantage of experiencing a university environment and are encouraged to participate in extra-curricular activities on campus.
