Advanced Practice Nurses

Education and Training Requirements

High School

If you want to become an APN, you will first need to complete the high school and undergraduate education necessary to become a registered nurse. This is done through the completion of a bachelor's or associate's degree program in nursing, or by obtaining a diploma from a nursing school. The nursing school diploma is becoming less popular, as more nurses enter the field through associate's, bachelor's, or even master's degree programs.
