2-Year Nursing Program

What is a two-year Nursing degree?

A 2-year nursing program, also known as an associate degree in nursing, or ADN, is the minimum amount of schooling required to prepare to become a registered nurse. Nurses who have earned their ADN must pass the NCLEX‑RN exam in order to become a licensed RN.
