The Good

Multiple top-ranked online programs:

Three different programs offered at the University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) have earned honors from the latest U.S. News & World Report online education rankings. The school’s online bachelor’s program is ranked in the top 10 of the Best Online Bachelor’s Programs, while the online graduate nursing and computer information technology programs rank well within the top 50 for their own program rankings. The University of Alabama in Huntsville has been offering online courses since the early 1990s, and their program rankings point to a dedication to quality online education.

Interactive online courses:

All online students are required to collaborate with each other in every online class with the University of Alabama in Huntsville. Students must log on at least once a week, and there are many distance learning technologies used to keep students involved with their coursework. Also, each online class is on the same academic track as the campus-based program, so online students get the the same pacing and quality of instruction as traditional, on-campus students.

Three nursing degree options:

The online graduate nursing program at University of Alabama in Huntsville is well recognized, ranking at number 13 with U.S. News & World Report. UAH offers both bachelor’s degree and master’s degree level nursing degrees in addition to a postgraduate nursing degree, a doctorate of nursing practice. Not every online nursing degree program offers a doctoral nursing degree, but UAH offers it online as a joint program with the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Nursing and the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa. The DNP degree aims to prepare expert practitioners and is available to nurses who already have a specialized advanced nursing master’s degree.

The Bad

Only one bachelor's degree program:

Many top online schools that offer bachelor’s degrees typically have several majors for online students to choose from, but the University of Alabama in Huntsville only offers a single complete bachelor’s degree in nursing. If you are a prospective online student who may want to switch majors while enrolled or may want a broad-reaching major such as liberal arts or general studies, then the University of Alabama in Huntsville is not a realistic option. However, the single online bachelor’s major they do offer has been ranked 21 by U.S. News & World Report, which speaks to a high quality of instruction and should be considered by anyone specifically seeking a bachelor’s nursing degree.
