Hi! I work at a college now and help with some of this, but many of our students who have a background in science, especially anatomy and phys., Biology, or chemistry can easily apply some of their courses towards nursing. Check with your nursing school and bring an unoffical copy of your transcript with you. Be sure to send on your official transcripts as well so they can properly determine your needs. Good luck!

There are three options to become a registered nurse as follows.

  • diploma program (typically three years, not recommended for individuals who do not have an already existing degree)
  • associate degree (Community College - two years as a full-time student once the student starts the professional phase of the program)
  • bachelor's degree (BSN) (four years as a full-time student)

What is the different in a RN from a community College and a RN with a bachelors from a 4 year college or University?

Both are registered nurses with the BSN having a higher degree, and thus a more well rounded education. While both go through a very intensive program, hospitals will be preferring nurses with the bachelor's degree especially in the future. The higher the degree the better when it comes to advancement, and marketability within the field.

Whats the difference between an RN degree and a nursing degree?

You do not get a RN (Registered Nurse) degree. To become a RN you earn an associate degree in nursing then take the state nursing exam. If you pass you are then a RN. You can also get a 4 year degree in nursing, which will make you even more marketable. Then, you would be an RN with a BSN. You still have to take the state nursing exam.

Is it better to go LPN route 1st then RN?

It depends on your personal needs, wants, and desires. If you have an urgency to get out into the workforce as soon as possible, the LPN would be an option. However, if you have the opportunity, I would strongly suggest you pursue the RN. You can choose to take this program through a community college (associates degree), or a four year college or university (bachelor's degree, BSN).

Im graduating HS soon and you want to become an RN How do you make this happen in a time efficient manner?

If there is an urgency to get out into the workforce as soon as possible, a community college is a great place to start. At the community college you can acquire an associates degree as a registered nurse much sooner than attempting a bachelors in nursing. However, I would consider continuing on for the bachelors after the associates degree. The higher the degree the more opportunities that will be open to you. If your home county community college does not offer a registered nurse degree, try some of the surrounding counties.

the RN program is a '2 year' program earning you an Associates Degree. However, a number of pre-requisites (basic/related college courses) must be taken before you will be eligible to apply for the RN program. depending on your location (state), you will have to take (and pass) be between 7 - 11 courses at your local community college.
