If you are getting a 2 year degree then doing other things to help your RN application stand out would be useful. Work as a nurse's aide or tech while in school. Do a summer internship in a hospital. Volunteer. Take your classes seriously and try to keep your GPA up.
- 0Quote from Student Nurse_7Many nursing homes will train you to be a CNA. A tech is a nurse's aide (not necessarily certified) that works in the hospital and has a few more skills than ADL"s, such as drawing blood.Well how will I have time to get my Cna?? What's a good gpa?? Easiest way to get intern???
A good GPA is going to be at least passing, but I would aim for A's. It may not always happen, but if you are trying your best and applying yourself then that is a start.
Many hospitals will offer internships during the summer to nursing students already in a nursing program. You would see these positions advertised on facility's career listings or through their nurse recruitment office

Try reading some of these recent threads:Thank you so much! I can't wait to help and save people's lives!!!!Do you recommend this as a very good career in demand??
- 1Jan 15, '13 by OCRN3It's not as in demand As before in the last few years most new grads can't get jobs right away. Job is not easy and takes a lot of sacrifice. Make sure you aren't just doing it for job security and money cause you may end up miserable in the long run.... Just saying
