Do you need a license to become a nurse?
Yes, you will need a license to become a nurse. Given the important duties that are handled by nurses in a variety of healthcare situations, it should be no surprise that the government does not want just anyone practicing the profession.
Licensing requirements for different professions are usually placed at the state and the local level. Because of that, if you look hard enough you may be able to find a state or a city where nurses are allowed to operate without a license. But those will be the exception, rather than the rule. In general, you’ll have to go to nursing school, and then pass a certification exam in order to get your license and become a registered nurse. Some states require that you spend some time working in a hospital during your training.
