Nursing is an important and ever-growing profession in the United States, and nurses are constantly in demand. Employers are looking for the most highly skilled applicants, and that typically means a nurse with more education and training. Nursing education can take the form of an associate’s (ADN), bachelor’s (BSN), or master’s (MSN) degree. The latter two degrees can only be earned from the state's accredited four-year colleges and universities. The associate’s degree typically requires two years to complete, the BSN requires a full four years, and the MSN takes an additional 2-3 years on top of a BSN.

Though the education can be competitive, there is significant room for advancement if a nurse is willing to put in time in the classroom. Registered nurses in Georgia earn an average annual salary of $61,630, while advanced practice registered nurses (those with a master’s degree) earn anywhere from $88,840 to $135,560 depending on field of specialization.
