There are LPN, RN, Nurse Practicioners, and Nurse Anesthetists. A LPN is a license practical nurse and works under and RN. Their scope of practice is limited. Being an RN (registered nurse) can allow you to work in many different specialties. Nurse Practicioners and Anesthetists are advance practice nurses and their pay is higher but both require master's degrees.

After earning a four-year RN, you can go on to become a nurse practitioner in a number of specialty areas (pediatrics, geriatrics, etc. ) Many RNs focus their work in a specific area like orthopedics, surgery, cardiology, ICU, NICU, etc. Other post-graduate fields include midwifery and anesthesia, both of which require additional, formal education.
