New Nursing Program in Birmingham

Herzing University Offers New Nursing Degree Program in Birmingham

To meet growing demand for registered nurses in the Alabama area, Herzing University, an accredited private nonprofit institution, has expanded its nursing programs to include an Associate of Science in Nursing degree at its Birmingham campus. The two-year Birmingham Associate in Nursing program is now open for enrollment, and prepares students to take the National Council Licensing Examination for registered nurses exam (NCLEX-RN) and become a licensed registered nurse (RN).

The annual job growth rate for RNs in Alabama, like most states across the South, is projected to reach more than 15 percent, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

“We’re launching this program in Birmingham because we’ve seen the demand for RNs first-hand at our on-campus career fairs and through our community partnerships,” said Tommy Dennis, Birmingham Campus President at Herzing University. “We’re proud to offer educational opportunities that fulfill a community need and make a positive difference in the lives of students.”

Herzing’s nursing program is ideal for students who know they want to pursue nursing as a career because they are able to get direct entry into the program. In addition to hands-on classroom experience, Herzing also offers clinical education opportunities at multiple sites in the Birmingham area along with high-fidelity simulation training labs with state-of-the-art technology.

Birmingham’s new associate degree offering is in addition to the Birmingham LPN diploma program and the 12-month LPN-to-RN Bridge program that allows LPNs to apply previous coursework toward an Associate of Science in Nursing degree. The campus consistently achieves high pass rates for LPN and RN board licensure exams.
