Alabama FNP Programs
Alabama requires that nurses complete an undergraduate nursing program that is officially approved by the Alabama Board of Nursing or substantially meets the same educational criteria as the approved programs.
Of the state-approved undergraduate schools, 14 schools offer Master's degrees in Nursing. Alabama Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN) licensure laws require that Nurse Practitioner programs also be accredited on a national level.
Twelve of the state-approved schools are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) and one is accredited by The Accreditation Commission For Education in Nursing (ACEN).

A nursing license granted by the Board of Nursing in Alabama is relatively versatile in terms of relocation. Alabama is one of 32 states currently enrolled in the Nurse Licensure Compact (NLC), an agreement that allows nurses in NLC states to practice in other NLC states without obtaining additional licensure in those states.
