    RN program in the US is the minimum degree qualification for you to be eligible for RN licensure. It will not give you a "BSN" after completion, but will give you an Associate degree in Nursing.

    For the sake of licensure, RN program is enough. But if you want to pursue higher education, like a Master's degree, then you need to have a BSN. To have your BSN recognized, an organization / university may request an evaluation, just like a CES of CGFNS.

    Remember, licensure requirements are different from university requirements.
