The Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) is defined as a person that has earned a 2-year degree in nursing from an accredited college or technical program. Once they have finished the degree, the person must successfully pass the NCLEX exam
A Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) requires completing an accredited practical nursing certificate program , which is usually offered at community colleges and take about a year to complete. Students can expect to take courses in biology, pharmacology, and nursing while also receiving hands-on clinical experiences.
An LPN-to-RN program is an educational path designed specifically for licensed practical nurses (LPNs) looking to further their education and career . The program uses your LPN education and experience as a starting point and offers in-depth curriculum at an accelerated pace.
A BSN, which stands for Bachelor of Science in Nursing , is an undergraduate-level degree for registered nurses (RNs) that introduces nurses to topics such as patient care technology, research, health promotion, safety and quality within the healthcare system.
You can attain your BSN 3 ways.
The first way is through an undergraduate 4 year college with a nursing program. The second way is through an accredited accelerated 15-18 month nursing program after attaining a bachelors in any field. The third way is through an RN to BSN program.
