RN Programs in New York

There are many different RN programs in New York. Deciding which one to attend depends on whether the applicant wants to spend two years or four years in college. It is usually easier to be admitted to a community college than a four-year college, but those who want to pursue a career as an RN should contact individual RN programs that they may be interested in. Many times applicants may take pre-nursing courses if they do not have the right educational background, and later they may apply to the RN program.
