If so, could you help me with some information? Is studying to become a nurse difficult? Is nursing the kind of job you would recommend for an introvert? What kind of hours do nurses work? I've heard they often work 12 hour shift but they also only work a couple days a week, right? What kind of course does a bachelor's degree in nursing require? Is a bachelors all you need to become a nurse? What does LPN mean? I know RN means 'registered nurse' but what does LPN mean? Is the exam to become an RN difficult? I'm considering changing my bachelor's degree in psychology to a degree in nursing but I'm years behind where I should be (I should be graduating this year and I've only finished a semester, I do my work online by the way). I don't know what I can do with a psych degree, since I don't plan on going to grad school. Are online nursing degrees taken seriously by hospitals?
