College of Nursing

    "The faculty and I invite you to allow us to assist you in achieving your goal for a challenging and rewarding career as a professional nurse." - Dean Debra Davis

    High Quality Programs Online and On-Campus

    As an early adopter of the use of technology in education, the faculty at the USA College of Nursing are experts in delivering high quality online nursing degree programs for the working nurse. Complete your courses online and if you are like most students you will be able to complete clinical requirements in your home communities while working with a preceptor and your faculty. With faculty and staff support, you don't have to be a "techie" to be successful in the online degree programs offered by USA. And, you can access the library, bookstore, and many other student resources all online.

    USA College of Nursing also offers the finest on-campus programs for students working toward earning a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN). Using highly qualified faculty and staff, state of the art simulation and lab facilities, and local clinical experiences, our on-campus students train to successfully license in their profession, as well as further their education in our MSN and DNP programs.

    The BSN, MSN, and DNP programs at the University of South Alabama College of Nursing are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education,
    One Dupont Circle, NW, Suite 530
