I want to be a nurse practitioner. What steps do I need to take to become one?

I recently started taking high school prerequisites and have not yet started my Bachelor of Science in Nursing. I know that takes typically four years to finish, how long is the NP (Masters in Nursing) program? #nurse #registered-nurses #nurse-practitioner

It takes 2 years to get you NP after you have obtained your BSN.

Tanya’s Answer

I would recommend that you get a few years of experience after your BSN before starting nurse practitioner schooling. Nursing school only teaches you the theory and basic clinical skills. You need a few years of hands on to learn how to put everything you've learned into practice. After you have some experience, then I would apply to an RN-DNP program and go for your doctorate. It will make you more marketable, and a better rounded practitioner.
