Find the Right Nursing Degree for You

Tailor your nursing degree to your needs -- nursing courses are available anywhere from community colleges and trade schools to masters programs. The Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) takes two to three years in a community college or trade school. This degree will prepare you to be a registered nurse in a specific area. It is up to you to pick what type of nursing you want to pursue.

In four years you can earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) through state universities and private colleges. Unlike the ADN, the BSN will prepare you for a wide range of nursing settings. You will also be trained to handle administrative and leadership roles, which can aide you in promotions and long-term career goals.

Later in your career you can take Master's level classes to increase your training. These degrees focus you into specialized technical and research roles.

Whichever degree track you choose, you will learn the theory behind nursing, participate in hands-on opportunities to treat patients, and gain specialized information depending on the area in which you want to work. During your nursing training, you will get a chance to work in a hospital or other medical facilities to give you an idea of what to expect as a nurse.
