In the US
You can get your LVN in 3 semesters (1 for prerequisites the other 2 for LVN school)
You can get your ADN in 2 years plus 1 semester (the semester for prerequisites) Then 2 years for your AD
For a BSN its 4 years plus at least 1 semester for prerequisites

A bachelor degree in nursing takes four years to complete.

If you mean an RN, the average is probably 4-5 if you get a BSN degree. It really depends on if you get into a freshman direct admission program or if you have to qualify for admission after completing your prerequisites, or if you end up doing a post-baccalaureate accelerated BSN after completing your bachelor's degree.
