Alabama is called "The Heart of Dixie" for good reason. Tucked away in the Deep South, the state is known for the friendliness of its residents and distinct Southern hospitality, making Alabama an excellent place both to live and to start a nursing career. First of all, the overall cost of living is fairly low in Alabama, meaning your paycheck as a nurse will go farther as food and energy costs are less than in most other states. Secondly, Alabama provides a good combination of big city life and small town living, depending on what you seek. Nature is also abundant in Alabama, which has four national forests, as well as scenic wonders like Winston County's Natural Bridge Rock, a sight that has been called the longest natural bridge east of the Rocky Mountains. Alabama even features a small slice of the coast, down in the Mobile area.

Alabama has a vibrant health care community, in which qualified nurses are needed in hospitals, nursing homes, outpatient clinics and home health care agencies. The most in-demand jobs are concentrated in and around the major metropolitan areas such as Montgomery, Mobile and Birmingham. In fact, the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) and the Level I trauma center associated with it are known worldwide for medical research. UAB and its hospital are not only one of Birmingham's largest employers, but a hospital of this caliber creates ample work opportunities for nurses. Nurses in Alabama can get information about licensure in the state through the Alabama Board of Nursing. Alabama's nurses are represented by a professional organization called the Alabama State Nurses Association, an excellent resource where nurses can search for jobs, find continuing nursing education opportunities, and even connect with other nurses.
