Nursing program or conventionial college?

I am looking into nursing school, what is the better course of study? I can attend a 1 year LPN program finish that and work as an LPN, as I attend an LPN to RN program. Or is it better to attend a conventional 4 year college and major in nursing? What are the pros and cons of each? THANKS!

  1. If you want to get working fast, the LPN program and then LPN to RN would be the best choice.

    If you go to the 4-year college, however, you’ll not only get your certification as an RN, you’ll also get your BSN (bachelor’s of science in nursing). If you want to go on to work in management, get a masters in nursing, or become a nurse practitioner, that would be the way to go.

    You could also go back after getting your RN through the LPN-RN program and get your bachelor’s, if you want to do the one more step.
