Question by ayemmaine: Is Nursing in the City College really like that?
If I will study Nursing in a City College is it just 2 yrs and I can continue it in a University to make it 4 yrs? or 2 yrs is ok?
Because I came over here for a few months and I don’t have idea about that. Thanks!

There is a two year program that gives you and associate degree in nursing. Upon completion you’ll have to take the same board exams as the bachelor science nurses do. When you pass that you’ll be a registered nurse.
The B.S. degree is better if you’re interested in administrative nursing.
Personally, I’d do the A.D. and if it turns out that nursing is your thing you can go back and work on your B.S.N. while you’re making good money.
I’ve known lots of A.D. nurses who worked in really responsible positions, held charge nurse positions. So much of it seems like it has to do with your desire to either lead people or do straight patient care. The good news is there’s room in nursing for each type.
I retired from nursing after nearly 40 years and it was always a challenge and a joy. Best of luck.
