Step One: The first thing you need to do is apply for admission into a nursing program. It will take about a year of training to become a nurse before being able to obtain a position in the field. You have the option of either going to a nursing school or a community college. You can also attend a four year college. There are two main types of nurses, LPNs and RNs, which could take a year to 18 months to complete. You can also obtain a two year or four year college degree.
