The Capstone College of Nursing (CCN) at The University of Alabama offers the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN.) CCN welcomes freshman, transfer students, and second degree students. The college is also committed to providing accessible educational options for registered nurses who want to return to school.
From the start, at the CCN, students have the opportunity to be mentored by nursing faculty. Students experience individualized attention from instructors in classes, labs, and clinical settings. Networked computers, multi-media classrooms, human patient simulators, and the learning resource center provide state of the art technology needed for a quality nursing education.
The ability to learn and practice nursing skills in a simulated environment is right here – all within the heart of Alabama’s beautiful residential campus. Excellent clinical facilities, from hospitals to home care agencies, health departments to public schools, are available in Tuscaloosa and the surrounding communities. In these settings students will learn to think, act, and practice as a nurse.
Leaders in health care have long recognized the nursing program at The University of Alabama as graduating students with a strong academic background and a well-rounded clinical experience. Students graduate with more than a degree; they have experience – a combination that opens doors to numerous career opportunities. CCN alumni are actively recruited by health care agencies in Alabama and across the nation.
The BSN curriculum plan consists of lower and upper division courses.
