Jemimah’s Answer

As an FNP, I went this route - earned a BSN (4 years), then FNP (2.5 years part-time). Some people go the route of RN and then BSN before master's. If you want to be a DNP, you can go from RN to DNP and cut out everything else. That will give you a shorter path and straight to your goal.
Steps after degree
- RN/BSN = NCLEX, Apply for state license
-MSN/DNP = Board exam (ANCC or AANP), Apply for State license/Prescription authority, DEA/Credentialing

Keep in mind that continuing education is required for each degree.

Hwal’s Answer

Keorah,

I'm a current PA student learning to practice medicine, and the majority of PA programs in the U.S. require a bachelor's degree to qualify to apply. Most PA programs are 24-30 months in duration, fulltime, and my program is 27 months long. So after getting your high school diploma, it would take about 6~6.5 years of school work to become a certified PA.

Also, feel free to check this link out for the most current information on how to become a PA:

Good luck!

Jess’s Answer

A standard Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN), is a 4-year degree program. After getting this degree typically you'd take the NCLEX to become an RN, which is the normal certification for nursing!
