Nurses most commonly enter the occupation by completing a Nursing Associate's Degree or Nursing Bachelor’s Degree Program. However there are many nursing programs geared towards career changers who already hold a degree in another field and want to enroll in an accelerated program.
Obtaining a Nursing License from a Nursing Program
Upon finishing a nursing program and prior to practicing, you must obtain a nursing license by taking a national licensing examination. With regards to nursing programs, especially online nursing programs; the main accrediting agencies are the NLNAC and NCLEX. There are also many specialty fields that require additional education and certification by independent licensing agencies. All nurses must also complete Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credits to keep up on emerging subjects and meet ongoing licensing requirements.
