Center for Nursing Excellence
“The UAB Center for Nursing Excellence gives us the opportunity to provide leadership in our pursuit of visionary, innovative nursing practice approaches, not just in our hospital, but to other nursing service systems throughout the state, our region and beyond.” Alberta McCaleb, DSN, RN, Administrative Director
As the state's largest employer, UAB contributes billions of dollars to our community's economy each year. In addition, our nurses play an important role in community service by volunteering their time and talents to promote and support the various activities in the Birmingham area and beyond.
While Birmingham offers many of the features of a large city, it still feels very much like a small town. With world-class entertainment, culture, and outdoor activities, find out why we are proud to call Birmingham home.
