I am a male nursing student starting my first semester of clinicals in January. I am currently enrolled in an ADN program for my RN and will be an RN in two years (fingers crossed!) I then intend on doing an accelerated RN to BSN program through my school, so I should have my BSN done in 3.5 years. I currently hold a good GPA and also am enrolled in an emt-basic course (I'll be done in February). I'm 18 years old and my goal eventually is to become a DNP. I'd also really like to serve my country in the military as an officer at some point. Does anyone have any tips or tricks for getting into a DNP program and/or getting into Officer Candidate School for the military? Also any info on strengthening my résumé for both of these endeavors would be super appreciated!
I would get your BSN (or beyond) then commission as an officer. Get all the health care experience you can along the way. EMT is good, and that will qualify you to work in an ER as a tech (great experience). This is exactly how I started. Stay fit and unarrested, good luck. (MSN, 1LT USAF)
