No, you do not. Although if you do become a nurse, you may eventually want to get a Bachelor’s degree in order to advance in the career.

There are many different types of nurses. In order to become a licensed practical nurse (LPN), or a registered nurse (RN), all you have to do is complete a training program and meet the licensing requirements of your state. LPN training can be completed in a few months, and you can get it in trade schools.

Becoming a registered nurse will take a bit more work. You’ll need an Associate’s degree in nursing, which usually takes around two years. You can also become an RN by getting a Bachelor’s of Science degree in nursing. As mentioned before, getting a Bachelor’s isn’t a requirement, but it’ll allow you to go further in the career later on.
