We are pleased that you have chosen Coastal Alabama Community College’s nursing program to prepare you for a career in the nursing profession. Our mission is to prepare graduates to practice safe, competent, patient-centered care in an increasingly complex and rapidly changing health care system.

Welcome to the Nursing Program


We believe that nursing is a dynamic profession, blending science with the use of evidence based practice and clinical reasoning with the art of caring and compassion to provide quality, patient-centered cared.

We believe learning is an interactive process in which faculty and students share responsibility to meet program outcomes. We believe in using educational methods that are current and supportive of students in the teaching and learning environment, with the presentation of information from simple to complex.

Nursing is guided by standards of practice and standards of professional performance. Standards reflect the values and priorities of the nursing profession. Therefore, we have integrated competencies from the Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) and National League of Nursing (NLN) into our philosophy as part of our core values.


Coastal Alabama Community College is proud to offer simulated educational activities in two highly sophisticated Simulation Labs. The Simulation Labs are housed on the Atmore and Fairhope campuses. The mission of the Simulation Program at Coastal Alabama Community College is to prepare graduates to be competent in providing safe patient care in a complex, rapidly changing healthcare environment within the global community. Simulation experiences provide access to a platform of guided, yet autonomous, learning in a safe environment that affords educational opportunities in the areas of critical thinking, clinical judgment, teamwork, communication, collaboration, delegation, and prioritization.
