Schools to consider:

Students enrolled in a nursing program may choose to complete a two-year Associate’s nursing program or a four-year BSN nursing program.  Offerings vary by school, and those with previous bachelor’s degree in a non-nursing field may choose an accelerated nursing program to earn their BSN in a shorter period of time.
