    I thought it was supposed to be 2 years, not 4. That's a fricken BSN. Is this normal
    And that is right. Some programs take two years and some actually take a little less due to summer courses. Some require prereqs to be completed prior and some have them worked in but I have never heard of a RN/ADN or ASN program requiring 4 years.

    In most states you can earn a BSN in 4 years. I don't know about you but I don't have 2 extra years to waste on an ADN degree. My advice, find another school.
