I'm a student at University of South Alabama. The classes are online. For the FNP track, you do need to go to campus for 2 days of on-site skills intensives before you start clinicals. The tuition is relatively inexpensive and all students pay the same rate (no out-of-state tuition).

They have an ADN to MSN or ADN to DNP option where you earn the BSN during your studies (degree is conferred), and then go on immediately to the MSN or DNP portion.

Does this program have an RNFA option??? I'm wondering if it would be better for me to get my bachelor's while working as an ADN then get my Master's or just go the ADN to MSN route. I am interested in becoming a surgical NP.

South Alabama does not have RNFA, but UAB does and their tuition is relatively low (compared to other schools that offer RNFA). 

As far as which route to take, that's up to you. I worked after getting my ADN, while simultaneously working on the BSN, so I could work my way up and get critical care experience. If you want RNFA, you should definitely try to work as a surgical RN because most have an experience requirement. Don't be in a rush. There's no "deadline" or time you need to cross the finish line. Do what works for you and your life 🙂
