Alaska is a great place to start an accessible, well-paying, and rewarding career as a registered nurse (RN). Although it is possible to become an RN through an associate’s degree program, employers strongly prefer to hire RNs with bachelor’s degrees. Earning a bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) degree will not only give you a competitive advantage on the job market, but it also tends to confer higher pay and greater responsibility in the workplace.

Earning an associate’s degree in nursing (ADN) is the quickest and easiest route to becoming a registered nurse (RN). Associate’s programs provide aspiring RNs with the training they need to get started on the job, and prepares them to pass the required NCLEX-RN exam. ADN programs are offered at technical schools and community colleges, and only take two years to complete.
