Charity is a two-year program, but you earn an ASN (associate science in nursing).
If you don't plan to attend graduate nursing school to earn a masters or doctorate, then an ASN is sufficient enough to be a licensed RN.
LSUHSC is a three-year program, and you earn a BSN (bachelor science in nursing). LSU has an accelerated program that's approximately 1.5 yrs for those who already earned a previous bachelors degree in another field. In both traditional and accelerated, students upon completion earn a BSN. A BSN is required for most graduate nursing programs so LSUHSC would be an ideal choice for those that want to advance in their career.
