Nope that is wrong. A nurse practitioner has a masters degree. A registered nurse had an associates (2years) or a bachelors (4years). An LPN (licensed practical nurse) has a certificate usually completed in 16 months. a masters degree requires 6 years education.
To become a nurse practitioner, it requires you to have a minimum of two years of education in order to be able to give examinations, diagnose patients and prescribe medications while working under a licensed physician.
