    AFAIK, there are not any nursing programs that are that short. CNA programs aren't very long, but that's not a nurse.

    Good luck!

    There are no nursing programs in existence that last only 6 months.

    The shortest nursing program in Texas is the licensed vocational nurse (LVN) program, which tends to be 12 months long at private vocational schools. The typical associate degree RN program takes 2 to 3 years to complete. The typical bachelor degree RN program takes 4 to 5 years to complete. The typical diploma RN program takes 3 years to complete.
