An RN degree is sort of like an Associate's degree. The required coursework typically takes about two years to complete; sometimes more if you haven't completed certain basic prerequisites in general education subjects like math and education.

A BSN is like a Bachelor's--it's usually a four-year degree. A lot of schools have RN-to-BSN programs that will accept transfer students who already have a two-year nursing degree. As for how long it will take you to get your BSN, that depends on the school's transfer policies. It's common for students to take one to two years to get a BSN if they already have an RN, but some schools may not accept your transfer credits, and in that case it would take longer. Check with schools to find out what their transfer policies are before enrolling. Here are some degree programs offered from universities that offer RN-BSN programs online.

Bachelor of Science in Nursing (RN to BSN) from Liberty University
RN to Bachelor of Science in Nursing from University of Saint Mary
