Practice Nursing at an Advanced Level

Nurse Practitioners fill a critical healthcare need in our society. They are health promotion and disease prevention experts who manage and diagnose common acute and chronic illnesses while maintaining a high quality of care. In rural southeast areas, state health disparities make these nurses vital to the patients they treat.

Through The University of Alabama Capstone College of Nursing, you can earn your advanced degree without interrupting your career. The convenient blended format combines online courses with face-to-face clinical experiences.

Upon graduation, you will be able to increase access to primary and mental health care for families living in rural areas of Alabama, Florida, Georgia and Mississippi.

Please note, only baccalaureate prepared registered nurses who are Alabama, Florida, Georgia or Mississippi residents are eligible for admission.
