There are a number of degrees that you can earn that will certify you as a nurse, it all depends on what level of degree you are looking to obtain.

The first is a Licensed Practical or Licensed Vocational Nurses (LPN or LVN). This degree will take you about a year to a year and a half of coursework, and will certify you for basic medical care. Typically these individuals aid nurses with advanced degrees.

Next is a Registered Nurse or an RN. To become an RN you will need a two-year Associates degree, and will be certified to asses, evaluate, implement, and plan the care of the sick and injured.

If willing, there are still two more degrees one can work towards. A BSN or Bachelor of Science in Nursing offers individuals the opportunity to develop the professional knowledge, skills, and understanding that is required of individuals to apply general medical care. This degree will take an additional two years of coursework following an Associates Degree.

Finally, the MSN or Master of Science in Nursing. This advanced degree will prepare individuals for working as a Clinical Nurse, Nurse Practitioner, Nurse Midwife, and Nurse Anesthetist. This degree requires that the individuals have a Bachelor's degree, and will need to complete two years of coursework.

A number of these degrees can be obtained online as well. Follow this link to check out the various nursing programs that offered online.
