North Carolina nursing schools, online and on-campus

When choosing a nursing program, it is important to consider that one's level of education impacts the scope of practice, wages and career path. Here are the educational requirements for three given occupational titles:

  • LPNs and LVNs usually complete a year-long program, and then work under the supervision of RNs, nurse practitioners or physicians.
  • RNs typically either have an associate degree or a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Nurses often obtain a BSN if they want to pursue specializations in advanced care nursing, seek administrative positions or move to health care jobs outside of primary care.
  • Nurse practitioners and advanced care nurses are expected to fill an important niche in the future. They generally hold a master's degree in nursing and certifications in specialized fields like acute care or anesthesiology.
