Nurse at PDI Surgery Center
Santa Rosa, California
The time it takes varies depending on the route you choose and how much you want to spend. I went to a community college. It took me 2 full time years to do my prerequisites, and 2 years to complete the nursing program. It took another 2 years to get my BSN ( I recommend getting a BSN regardless of which path you take). I chose to do it this way as I could work as a nurse while at university, get experience and pay for tuition. Some of my friends went right into a university and completed their training in 4-5 years graduating with a BSN. Whatever path you choose, best of luck! It’s the best career!
