Hi Abigail,

Registered Nurses have 4 year Bachelors degrees from a college. Real world experience in hospitals or other medical settings is taught as part of some college programs as well.

If you're interested in becoming a nurse do some research on good Nursing programs offered and see what best fits you, location, program, tuition cost, etc.


USNews is a trusted website for college rankings and information.

When you find several programs that you like and would want to pursue, research the school's nursing program on their official university website. I went ahead and looked up Indiana University's Nursing website as an example since your question says Versailles Indiana



A student as Indiana nursing will take 4 years of courses in nursing, science, humanities and other general electives.

Best of luck!
