ADN Degree Programs

The Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) takes two to three years in a community college or trade school. This degree will help 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 wider 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.
