A survey was submitted to all nursing education programs in Alabama in November 2006 by the Alabama Center for Nursing. The survey was submitted to 37 schools which provided information on 50 nursing education programs. The larger number is derived from schools with multiple campuses submitting information on each separate nursing program. Of the total number of programs supplying information, 18 were LPN programs, 20 were ADN programs, and 12 were BSN programs. Each program housed under a school submitted a separate report. In some sections of the survey, as few as 40 programs reported data, and this is reflected in the analysis.
