Degree Programs

At the undergraduate level we offer a traditional Bachelor of Science in Nursing, as well as options for veterans and students who've previously earned a bachelor's degree in another field. For graduate students, we offer a Doctor of Nursing Practice, the terminal degree in the nursing field. Wherever you feel called, a degree from the Ida Moffett School of Nursing prepares you to thrive.

Clinical Work

We believe that the best education is a combination of study and applied practice. You will begin clinical work early in the program. As an undergraduate student, you will work in one of the most advanced simulation labs in the world; you'll also work in a variety of clinical settings with nurses who are both skilled professionals and motivated teachers. Because we are in Birmingham, one of the leading health care centers in the world, we can provide you countless clinical opportunities in almost every specialty.

We believe that clinical work is equally important to graduate students. Whether you study online or on campus, we will tailor your experiences to give you the opportunities you need to reach your goals.
