Baldwin County Campus
Welcome to the Baldwin County Campus and the College of Nursing at the University of South Alabama. We offer the Accelerated option for students to complete the BSN/MSN at the Baldwin County campus located in Fairhope, Alabama.
The Accelerated BSN/MSN track is for academically qualified and highly motivated individuals that have a bachelor's degree in another field. This program is the same as required for the traditional student, except that the course schedule is accelerated and is not confined by the traditional academic calendar.
USA Baldwin County Campus College of Nursing Facility
The University of South Alabama College of Nursing is a 20,503 square-foot, state-of-the-art facility that provides nursing students with hands-on equipment including three computerized fully automatic Human Patient Simulators: a child, an adult male and a pregnant female. The simulators provide students hands on experience managing complex patient care situations. Heart attacks, gunshot wounds, asthma attacks, and seizures are just some of the conditions that can be simulated.
The adult male is an iStan which is the first human patient simulator based around a human-like skeletal structure. iStan also closely mimics the anatomical workings of the human body to a level of realism not possible with other simulators. Spine, neck, arms and hips all move with incredible life-like accuracy. Modeled from a unique cast of a real person, the skin of iStan truly acts, looks and feels like real human skin. The University of South Alabama is the only school in the southeast region and the only non-military institution to have an iStan.
