This answer depends on where you live, where you plan to practice, and what degree and experience you already have. Consider googling a local program to you and seeing what the curriculum is. An NP typically holds an MSN at minimum, and takes a substantial amount of courses for the designation. States license differently as well.
You would need a college degree first, however if you look closely enough, there are several schools in the US that offer accelerated programming, or combination programs leading to faster clinical hours.
You should find an NP in your state that you can ask these questions to. Also consider looking up your own state's licensing regulations- usually something under consumer affairs.

best of luck
