It depends on what nurse practitioner school you end up going to. It also depends on if you get your masters or your doctorate. It ALSO depends on if you take a fast track plan of study (more classes per semester to get done earlier) or a slow track (fewer classes). Many schools, if not most, are online now. Generally speaking, you can expect something like this:



  1. Graduate nursing school

  2. Work for a year or two as a nurse and apply to NP school

  3. Hopefully get accepted to NP school.

  4. Get your masters in 3 years or so or get your doctorate in 4-6 years.

  5. In that time you will combine class with tests that cover a ton of material, clinicals with either a doctor or nurse practitioner, 6-10 + page papers, charting on patients you see in clinicals, etc.

  6. Graduate

  7. Take State Board exams


I hope this helps! Let me know if you have anymore questions
