Hello, welcome to the board. To be an RN you must attend either a 4 year college and recieve a BSN (Bachelor's degree), a 2-3 year ADN (associate's degree) from a community college or a 3 year Diploma program (which I don't know much about). All require pre-requists (sp?) of Anatomy and Physiology parts 1 and 2, Microbiology and ususally humanities classes and english lit, psychology, sociology classes. Your best bet would be to call a community college or 4 yr college near you and talk to an admissions officer about the requirements you need. Look on the specific college's website for the syllabus and requirements. You could also look into and LPN (practical nurse) programs that are usually offered at Vo-tech colleges. Good luck!
