Education pathways
Most CNAs and LPNs choose to enroll in certificate courses at local community colleges. They can offer an attractive return on investment, as they are typically short in duration. RNs can also choose to attend vocational school in order to complete an associate’s degree. However, there is a growing employer preference for RNs who complete a bachelor’s degree program at a four-year institution.
