There are a number of different ways to achieve your license as an RN. You can go to nursing school or to a two-year or four-year college. As was said before, you need at least a two-year degree in order to become an RN.
It varies. To earn an Associates Degree in Nursing it takes about 2 to 2.5 years. To earn a Bachelors Degree in Nursing it takes 4 to 5 years. It depends on how many classes you take per semester/quarter.
A minimum of two years (ADN) and a maximum of six years (MSN) are required to become a registered nurse. You can begin your nursing career with an ADN as it provides comprehensive clinical training for bedside patient care. Once you have worked as a staff nurse for some time, you can enroll for an advanced nursing degree online. This way, you can continue to work and attend school at the same time! http://www.independence.edu/healthcare/bachelors/nursing
