To become an RN, you would need a 4 year college degree in nursing.

Then you need to pass the State boards for nursing.

For an LPN, you would obtain an Associates degree.

To what was said above that is not true.

There are three ways to become a RN.

One being a Diploma Program which spans over 3 years and are

becoming less common.

Then there is the associates degree in nursing which is a 2 year

degree.

And theres the Bachelors Degree in Nursing which is a 4 year

degree and normally ends at a university.

Individuals who have completed a diploma or associate's degree and

become licensed as registered nurses are equipped to work in the

field, but a BSN is a desirable credential for nurses who want to

advance in the profession.
