Hi Aubri! Morgan has linked a great resource above. However, I did just want to let you know that once you graduate high school, it will take approximately four years to become a registered nurse in college (Bachelor of Science in Nursing - BSN). You will then take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN) to ensure begin your career as an entry-level nurse.

Morgan’s Answer

There are many types of nursing degrees, each with different time requirements. I've attached a link that goes through the different kinds of nurses, how long the required schooling takes to complete, and a median salaries (this will vary by location): https://www.rasmussen.edu/degrees/nursing/blog/different-levels-of-nursing/

Richard’s Answer

It takes about 4 years to get your nursing degree from a university.

It would be great to save money by going to a community college for the first year or two.
