    A diploma graduate attended a diploma program usually associated with a hospital. A degree graduate attended a degree program at a community college or university. All three are qualified to take the NCLEX to obtain an RN license. Diploma programs are few and far between, being phased out across the nation. Most people get an ASN, BSN, or entry level MSN from degree granting educational institutions.
