Nurses are pivotal players at the heart of the healthcare system. The rising demand for nurses with more sophisticated skills have led to significant opportunities for professional growth and leadership roles in nursing. In addition to providing better outcomes for patients, nurses who have attained a bachelor’s degree typically enjoy higher pay and better benefits. For RNs who want to take their careers to the next level, a BSN degree can be the key.

The University of South Alabama’s College of Nursing offers a unique RN to BSN program positioning graduates for leadership roles in their institution. Students in the program will master BSN level coursework and gain hands-on clinical experience invaluable to their career advancement, whether it is a future role as Chief Executive Officer, Quality Improvement Officer, or Manager. The RN to BSN program at USA College of Nursing offers state-of-the-art instruction and convenience—all at an affordable price.

State-of-the-Art Instruction

Through all programs at USA College of Nursing, students receive first-class training that’s challenging, innovative, and rewarding. One of the key components of the course of study is a state-of-the-art simulation program housed within a new facility next to the College of Nursing housed within the Health Sciences building. Students will have full access to any simulated learning experience, designed to improve technical skills, clinical judgment, decision-making, communication, and teamwork. In addition, students  are placed in clinical sites within their own community or clinical requirements may be completed at USA Health Children’s & Women’s Hospital, USA Health University Hospital, or USA Health Mitchell Cancer Institute.


Students can complete the RN to BSN program while working full-time since the coursework is offered fully online. Students may fulfill the required clinical hours at their place of employment if that is the most convenient option for them. The program has arranged admissions and coursework to be easily accessible: students are admitted each semester rather than just once a year, and all courses are taught every semester so that nursing students can easily fulfill their requirements in the two semesters it takes to obtain the degree. USA College of Nursing also offers an RN to BSN/MSN option, allowing students to finish a BSN and move directly into the MSN program at USA. There are multiple advanced practice specialty tracks and sub-specialties offered at USA College of Nursing.
