Lol.. I'm so sorry. I had a couple of beers in me and were discussing with some buddies about the difference in nursing degrees in the us.
We didn't quite understand LVN/LPN, RN, BSN, NP, CNA etc.
In sweden there are generally two (well now three with NP) types of nurses. One is nurse assistans, which doesn't require any licensure and basically anyone can read a couple of courses and apply to work as a nurse assistant.
then we have the registered nurse. Which means three years of uni studies before receiving a bachelors degree and you can apply for your licence.
If you then want to specialize you Can choose anesthetic, onkology, geriatric, ICU, prehosp (ambulance), etc. which means another year, to a year and a half, in university before receiving your licence within your area.
how is that different from the us? are all types of nurses licensed?
I want some male nurses buddies in the us
