If you wish to go to college in order to become a nurse, then it usually takes around four years to complete the course and graduate. Of course, all college courses vary and no two are the same so make sure that you do your research. It is unlikely though that you will come across a course that takes a shorter amount of time.

Not many people know but there is more than one way to become a nurse. Two year programs are available for you to enrol on at community college which is another option available for people who do not wish to attend state schools on the four year program.

Most of the nursing programs that are available for you to enrol on require that you take certain classes and pass them in order to enter their program. If you are not enrolled on them or have not studied them, then it is best that you see your guidance counsellor for further advice on how to gain the necessary qualifications.

If you are still in high school and are sure that you wish to study nursing, then you can get a jump start in your career by taking two to four years of English, Maths, Science, Social Studies, a Foreign Language and Computer Science.

The type of program that you can enrol on in college all depends on what type of nurse you want to be, such as what you want to specialise in. This could also affect the length of time that you stay in college and study for. If you are unsure about the options in nursing that are available to you then make an appointment to see your guidance counsellor who will be able to give you a clearer picture of what you can do.
