Advanced Practice Nurses

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.
