I already posted this on the International Nursing section but don't seem to get any answers so I'll give this one a shot!
I've been browsing this forum for a while now... and the thing that puzzles me are the abbreviations of different nursing programs in the US.
I'm starting a nursing program on Aug. 19th and it will last for 3,5 years, no prereqs. just apply with your high school diploma (+entrance exam=personality tests and teacher interview).
I know a bit of the college system in the US (I spent a semester in TX high school) but please fill me in... how do you end up as a nurse in the States???
