I'll be starting nursing school this fall, and I'm curious how it will be looked upon when I start looking for a nursing job in a little over 2 years but don't have any healthcare related work experience??? It seems like most of the nurses and nursing students I know worked as either patient care technicians or student nurse assistants while in nursing school. I'm a mom of a toddler and my husband is also preparing for nursing school while working full time+, so working does not appear to be a very practical option for me while in nursing school. Will this be a mark against me when I start looking for a job or do new grads get hired easily without having health care related experience? Thanks much for the input!
