Good evening, my name is Dylan Clark. I am 29 years old and I am a CNA, CMA, CHHA, CPT, and CET and I am also working as an ER Technician. I am planning on returning to nursing school next year, however. This is my question. Say I decided to attend a 4 year BSN program at a University. Would I then have to attend RN school to become a licensed Registered Nurse upon completion of my BSN first? Or would I be eligible to sit for my NCLEX-RN upon completion of my BSN?
I guess what I am asking is this. If I were to earn my BSN instead of going to RN school first, would that be sufficient for me to work as a nurse? Or would I still have to attend RN school even after that?
Thank you for your time and understanding.

A BSN program is RN school and makes you eligible to sit for NCLEX as long as the program is approved by the state BON. The RN career has multiple entry points:
Any program that you are looking at should include a review of:
Lipoma, BSN, RN
A BSN allows you take the NCLEX-RN upon graduation which grants you practice authority.
