The Degree You Need To Become A Registered NurseCompumed
What degree do you need to become a Registered Nurse? RNs typically must have at least an associates degree in nursing. The associates degree provides an entry level education in the nursing field and allows nurses to start their careers.
While you can continue your education, you only need an ADN to begin working as a nurse. The ADN is a credential that will open doors to entry-level nursing jobs.
Getting your ADN
An ADN refers to the Associate Degree in Nursing. Before you can apply for licensure, you must complete and graduate from an approved nursing degree program like the one we offer at Compu-Med Vocational Careers. You will earn college credits while you train to become a Registered Nurse.
Then when you successfully complete the program, you are granted an Associate Degree in Nursing. Now you can register for the NCLEX-RN exam, which is required to become licensed.
An ADN shows that you have the solid foundation for starting a nursing career. Most employers will want at least an ADN for entry-level Registered Nurses. You will learn professional skills that can be used in any career as well as the nursing theory and practical skills you need as a working nurse.
