It depends on what programs you are looking at, but there are some that you can get a degree in 2 years. I would look online at some schools you are interested in, and if you have any family friends in the field, ask what programs they did or what college courses they took that helped them in this field that would be helpful for you.
Maya recommends the following next steps:
- Call a couple nursing programs in your area and see if you can meet with a counselor from each program to learn more about the length of the program and its requirements
- Meet with a couple nurses to ask what programs they did and what advice they would have for you starting to explore this career
- Ask to shadow a nurse to see what the daily tasks can look like
