Hello Foriegn Friend!
I am so glad to see you here!
OK, I'll give this info as best as I know, here it goes:
1 year of college:
LPN = Licensed Practical Nurse
LVN = Licensed Vocational Nurse
2-3 years of college:
ADN,RN = Associate Degree in Nursing
ASN,RN = Associate of Science in Nursing
4 years of college:
BSN,RN = Bachelor of Science in Nursing
6-7 years of college:
MSN,RN = Master of Science in Nursing
The RN stands for "registered nurse", meaning one has successfully passed the nursing board exam. If I am unclear or made any mistakes in presenting this to you I apologize
How is the training over their? Do you have many different degree paths as we do?
