Again looking to capitalize on my previous sales experiences but want to set myself apart from my competition in this very competitive field. I knew yal would be a huge resource with the wealth of knowledge and overview nurses have. I have been toying around with the idea of trying to obtain the rn accreditation but I do not know of any other types of certificates or accreditations that are well respected and could be used to add to my resume.
What else is out there that seems maybe more realistic here? I am great at studying for tests, If there was something where you get "the book" and do a few practice exams when your ready to take the test I am confident in being able to pass.
What are other options??
Thanks in advance!
Nursing isn't just something you add to your resume to beef it up. It takes years of hard work, lots of money, and lots and lots of time. Not to mention if you are applying to a nursing program just to "get it on your resume", you are taking a "seat" away from someone who really and truly wants to be a caregiver.
Just my 2 cents.

I think the initial thread summed it up but again I am a professional salesmen looking to get an advantage in the very competitive field of medical device sales. As I was saying in the initial thread I questioned becoming an rn, I never said that was an accreditation and I already realize the process which would take prob min 2 years if done as most do and is alot of work, thats why I joined this site to try and gain insight and find out what other options are out there and see their requirments and procedures and costs
So besides becoming an rn what else is a out there? Something that is already known to be legit, not some lame internet degree that no one heard of, something that the peers of your industry see value in possessing
for example though this not apply to my situation but for the sake of explaining say someone wanted to add finance to their resume, they may seek out a "Certificate of Finance" most colleges offer them and they last 6 months, this seems more logical than instead goin all out and getting a economics degree that takes 4 years and is over the top for the goal and not needed to attain the goal at hand.
Anyone that finds this hostile in anyway is certainly far off and need not to reply then, no fishyness, or trolling
Just was looking to try to engage in a real conversation about what else is out there with people with a knowledge of healthcare field and people that could offer real insight so I joined this site and based on the replies I am getting few tried to be helpfull thus far
