You are correct. There are no stupid questions.
When you finish those two years of nursing school, you will qualify to take the nurse exam to become a Registered Nurse. As an RN you will enjoy a wide variety of positions in hospitals, home health, and elsewhere.
If you choose, like me, you can then pursue a Bachelor's Degree in nursing. This will not change your RN status, but allow you to pursue other positions, such as positions in management, research, education, community health, etc.
Please feel free to ask any questions here or in other forums. You're more likely to get your questions answered in the forums, as this is mainly for introductions. We have a forum called Pre-Nursing Student forum http://allnurses.com/forums/f198/
where you might find some help as well.
