So I'm finishing my semester up and will hear from my local RN program whether I will begin in the fall. I'm confident I will get in but can't be too sure. Anyways, I registred for a coupld of classes that would be needed for the BSN. I figured I'd have the summer free to take them vs. later when I'd be busy with nursing school
so that I could jump right into the BSN after the RN.
I'm thinking about dropping those summer courses and taking a 5 week CNA course to help me get an RN job when I graduate. I'd be able to make a little money for school and I thought it would give me some nursing experience. Do employers care about this when you're getting your first RN job?
Is this a smart move? I would continue part time maybe throughout nursing school, with the hope it would help me get an RN job as I have zero nursing experience.
What do you think? I have to register for the upcoming CNA class by 5/14 so not sure what to do HELP!
