I am looking at nurse practitioner programs in Alabama and need more information. I am interested in South Alabama, Troy and Auburn. When i looked on line Auburn's program said it is only 40-something credit hours while Troy and South's programs are over 70 hours. I am unable to get alot of information off line such as how many clases will not be offered online and how many times you will need to travel to the school. If anyone knows any thing more or has any opinions as to which school will be the best please let me know!
