Big difference there. At one of the area community colleges, if a person gets into back-to-back programs, they can be an RN in 18 months. My sister lives in another part of the state, and it's taking her 2 full years. Pediatrician is like a regular doctor, just with a specialty, and is going to take roughly a decade - IF you've already done the college thing and those credits apply, possibly longer if you haven't or they don't.
