Nurses provide life-saving and life-changing care at the bedside, and depending upon their level of education nurses can also work just about anywhere. By choosing nursing, you are choosing a versatile career that you can use in a variety of ways across your lifetime.

There is a growing need for Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN)-prepared nurses and the UAB School of Nursing offers multiple pathways to earn your BSN degree:

  • The traditional, four year, BSN Pathway.
  • The distance-accessible RN to BSN Pathway for registered nurses with an Associate's Degree in nursing who want to earn a BSN. There is also a RN to MSN Pathway for those who want to seamlessly progress into the MSN program.
  • The UAB Nursing Community College Partnership (UABNCCP) Joint Enrollment Pathway that allows students to earn an Associate's' Degree and a BSN degree at the same time.
