Please note:
This online program does not lead to any professional licensure or certification that would be regulated by your state board of nursing.  Our program does include clinical requirements which are completed in your community under the supervision of a preceptor who you will secure with assistance from the course instructor. If your state Board of Nursing (BON) requires approval of a supervised field experience, such professional approval requirements remain in effect. Please contact your BON if you have any questions about this requirement. If you or your state’s BON have questions about the program, please contact Dr. Clarissa Hall cdhall@una.edu. UNA has been approved by Alabama to participate in the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements. NC-SARA is a voluntary, regional approach to state oversight of postsecondary distance education.
Currently, we cannot accept students from the following states and regions:
  • Commonwealth of Northern Mariana Islands
  • California
