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 (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)

It can take 2-3 years and then you must pass your State's Nursing exam.

Check your local Community Colleges, Universities, Colleges for day and night programs. It is best to get a BS in Nursing as well as your RN certification.

An associate degree in nursing (ADN) requires two years of college to obtain. After this, you are qualified to take the NCLEX exam to obtain your RN license.

A bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) requires four years of college. There are two paths to obtain a BSN: some people first get their ADN and take further courses, while others go directly from high school into a baccalaureate nursing program.

The amount of time it takes to become a registered nurse depends on the school, the program, and how quickly the student is able or willing to go through classes. A full time student will complete the program faster than a part time student who may be working while taking classes.

You can become a registered nurse with a 2 year associate's degree or you can choose to get your bachelors degree an about 4 years. Both degrees will qualify you to become an RN, but the bachelors degree will give you more opportunities for advancement later on. The bachelors degree also makes you eligible to pursue a masters degree or doctorate in nursing so that you could become a nurse practicioner or nurse specialist.
