Vocational, career, and community colleges are a viable choice for students seeking a headstart in the nursing field without spending years in the classroom. A community college typically costs less than a liberal arts college or private university, accommodates commuter and parttime students, and offers a range of associate’s degrees and certifications.

The nursing programs at community colleges typically last one year for licensed practical nurses (LPNs) and two years for registered nurses (RNs). Credits can then be transferred to a four-year college or university where a bachelor’s degree (BSN) and even a master’s degree (MSN) can be earned. As with most professions, the more education a nurse receives, the greater his or her earnings potential will be. LPNs in Georgia earn an average of $37,330 dollars per year, while RNs earn an average of $61,630 per year. Advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs), who typically hold a master's degree, earn $88,840 to $135,560 per year in Georgia depending on field of specialization.
