In order to become a nurse, would you recommend a two or four year college?

I am currently a senior in high school and I am trying to decide between a two year or four-year program. I asked a recent graduate and she told me that it depends on what you want to do. I want to be very hands-on and work in an emergency room. I like the idea of being more educated, but would it really give me an advantage? I am trying to save as much money as I can. Are the qualifications of the two nurses different? Could a four-year college provide me with more opportunities and a higher wage?

You are on the right path. I would do the 4-year program and get your Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN). Now, this program is hard this is not an easy major by far but its financially rewarding and includes more responsibilities and you would feel good knowing you are making a significant contribution to your community. Getting your bachelor’s degree is the way to go for sure would provide you with a higher wage and more opportunities. I know someone who is making over $90k after she obtained her BSN and she had offer before graduation I believe. Don't let student debt deter you because your education is an investment literally. An in demand career as nurse offers so many benefits which include job security and loan forgiveness. You will be fine! Trust me, I would not steer you wrong. You are Great… Good Luck!

4 year- become an RN. The job opportunities and ability to make more money depends on it. Lesser 2 year nursing degrees dont offer the same salary and you will be doing mundane jobs. Being an RN is much better and can lead to great opportunities and advanced career opportunities such as Nurse Practitioner, etc.
