There is no difference in licensure, responsibilities, job opportunities or career path - a GN or new RN is a GN/new RN.
My program is 22 months long (breaks between terms, but no summers off). That 22 months includes 30 credits of non-nursing courses (A&P, micro, nutrition, etc.) granted from a local university - their faculty come to our campus to teach. Our clinical rotations include the 2 hospitals in our system, LTC facilities, a state psych hospital, a Children's hospital and various community agencies. The total of clinical hours is approx. 1900.
Our credits for both nursing and non-nursing courses transfer easily to RN-BSN programs.
HTH. If you need more info, just let me know.
